Flexible Spending Account Reminder
Make the most of your Flexible Spending Account! There is a 75-day grace period
for all 2016 reimbursable expenses. This means that you can still claim services received in the first 75 days of 2017 against your 2016 Flex account. The deadline
for filing for 2016 services is March 31, 2017.
These claims should be sent to ProBenefits by fax at 877-329-3539 or email at email@example.com. You may contact ProBenefits at their toll free
