How to use the FSA/HRA debit card

This video explains:

  • What to do when you receive your card

  • How to use the card

  • Why it is vital that you keep your receipts

Important Note: The debit card can also be used with the HRA account, and everything in the video will apply to the HRA except that the HRA does not have tax benefit for the individual employee as does the FSA.

Benefits of an FSA Account

This video explains:

  • Benefits to the employee of an FSA Health and/or Dependent Care Account

  • What expenses are covered

  • How to maximize the benefit to yourself

Important Reminders: These reminders should help you to determine whether to enroll in the FSA and, if so, for how much.

  • The HRA is used first and then the FSA

  • At the end of the year, any unused HRA balance will roll over and be added to that year's balance

  • Unused FSA funds do not roll over; therefore, any unused FSA balance at the end of the year will be forfeited

Important Note: The debit card can also be used with the HRA account, and everything in the video will apply to the HRA except that the HRA does not have tax benefit for the individual employee as does the FSA.
