The FSA plan year 2023 has closed. The IRS required that any 2023 balances remaining in your FSA account had to be spent by Mar. 15, 2024, and claims filed by Jun. 29, 2024, or the balance will be forfeited. This means that reimbursement for incurred expenses using 2023 funds must be filed by Jun. 29, 2024. This is known as the IRS "use it or lose it" rule and there are no exceptions.
