More info

It’s important to consider your election carefully.  Because of the tax benefits of FSAs, the IRS imposes a strict “use-it-or-lose-it” rule, which means money left in a pre-tax account at plan year end is forfeited.  However, you’re given additional time with the 2½ month grace period to use your benefits. For the 2018 fiscal year, you have until September 15, 2018 to incur claims and until October 15, 2018 to submit claims for reimbursement to submit claims for reimbursement.
