What happens if you choose to leave A-B?

For the DCFSA, if you separate employment during the year, you can continue to incur and claim day care expenses, up to the amount you contributed while employed, through the end of the plan year.

The only FSA you can combine with a Health Savings Account is a Limited Flexible Spending Account. If you enroll in both accounts, please plan to use your Limited FSA funds first.

You may consider enrolling in an HSA and a LFSA if:

  1. You expect to have vision or dental expenses equalling the full amount you contribute to the LFSA
  2. You think you will need the full amount you contribute to your LFSA on January 1st of the following year for dental and vision expenses
  3. You want to keep your HSA funds socked away for the future and you will still have dental or vision expenses that you want to use pre-tax funds to cover.
