​​​​​​​The State System offers a​ carryover for the Health Care FSA, which permits participants to rollover up to $570 in unused FSA funds to the following calendar year. Any remaining balances which exceed $570 will be forfeited. The Dependent Care however, must be used for expenses incurred DURING the plan year or money is forfeited. 

*Any carryover amount less than $5 will not carry over into the next calendar year*

Accessing Carryover Funds

Carryover amounts will be available at the beginning of April 2023.

Run-out Period

For both the Health Care FSA and the DCAP, you can submit 2022 expenses during the run-out period from January 1, 2023 - March 31, 2023.  

Health Care FSA
After March 31, up to $570 left over in your 2022 health care FSA will move over to your 2023 health care FSA.  Any 2022 health care FSA balance ​over $57​​0 will be forfeited. 

Dependent​ Care Assistance Program (DCAP)
After March 31, ​any 2022 DCAP balance will be forfeited. ​

Submitting 2023 Expenses

You may only be reimbursed for 2023 expenses during the run-out period if you elected a 2023 Health Care FSA. If you do not have a current plan year election, you will need to wait until after carryover has occurred (April) to submit for reimbursement. You do not need to elect a current year Health Care FSA for your money to carryover, however you will not be able to access your funds until April when the carryover has occurred.   

​Using your Spending Account Card​

If you elected a 2023 Health Care FSA, you can use your spending card beginning January 1, 2023.  If you did not elect a 2023 Health Care FSA, but have a carryover, you will be provided with a FSA spending card in April 2023​​.
