December is a hectic time of the year, but there's one thing you shouldn't overlook during the holiday rush. If you have a flexible savings account, or FSA, you need to check its balance, and check with your benefits department, to make sure you don't end up wasting that money.
Don't spend all year paying for benefits that you don't use.
If you've got money left over in your FSA from this year, hurry up and spend it! In many instances, if you don't use the money by the end of your benefits year, which for most people is December 31st, you'll lose it.
Now is a great time to finish your family's dentistry needs before the busy holiday season gets even busier. Schedule an appointment now for your dental exams, cleanings and other preventive care. Anything you can do at the end of the year to help improve your overall health is a good use of your FLEX dollars.
And making sure everyone's dental needs are addressed now could spare your family the hassle of a dental emergency during the holidays. If you have already exhausted your 2014 FSA, give us a call at 301-892-3337 to discuss how to best make your 2015 account work for you.
