Year-End Reminder for FSA Balances

Faculty and staff with funds available in a 2016 Flexible Spending Account (FSA) have been notified of their remaining balances. While their contributions were made in 2016, Ohio State’s FSA offers a grace period until March 15, 2017, to incur eligible claims. They have until March 31, 2017, to file claims for reimbursement or use their Health Care Debit Card, or they will forfeit any remaining balance per IRS guidelines.

FSA balances can be viewed and claims can be submitted through Employee Self Service in “My FSA/HRA” under Benefits.
