Be sure to use your 2012 flex funds by Dec. 31

If you haven’t used all the money you set aside in your 2012 Health Care Flexible Spending Account, now is a good time to see if there is a way you can use up any remaining funds before Dec. 31, 2012.

Health Care Flexible Spending Accounts are “use it or lose it” accounts; any unused funds are forfeited. Flexible spending account funds use tax-free dollars to pay for eligible health care expenses such as prescriptions, co-pays and eyeglasses.
