Important dates to remember

If you did not use all of your TexFlex FSA funds, you still have time. And, even if you don’t spend the money in your FSA by August 31, all is not lost.

  • Health care and/or limited-purpose FSA participants: You can carry over up to $550 to Plan Year 2023 (starting Sept. 1, 2022). Please note: There is a minimum carryover amount of $25 if you did not re-enroll for the new plan year.
  • Dependent care FSA participants: Unused funds will not carry over. However, you do have a 2 ½ month grace period from Sept. 1 to Nov. 15, 2022 to spend PY22 funds in your dependent care FSA.
