When are my HSA and FSA Funds Available?

Usually, your FSA and HSA funds will be available at the very beginning of the year, January 1st, so you can give yourself the perfect New Year’s present of clear vision.

When do my HSA and FSA Funds Expire?

FSA funds expire at the end of the year. They must be used in the same “coverage period” that the money was put aside for. Usually, the coverage is defined as one calendar year, ending on December 31st.

Any unused FSA funds will be lost once your coverage expires so make sure you’ve used it all up by the end of the year. And, if you haven’t, that’s the perfect excuse to splurge on a new pair of premium Tajima prescription Clear or Polarized Sun Lenses in your favorite frames.

HSA funds do not expire at the end of the year. Any unused funds will roll over to the next year.
