The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released Revenue Procedure 2023-34 (Rev. Proc. 23-34), outlining key updates to health flexible spending account (FSA) contributions and carryovers for 2024.
Per Employee Limitation
For the 2024 plan year, employees can contribute a maximum of $3,200 in salary reductions. Family members benefiting from the FSA have individual limits, allowing a married couple with separate FSAs to each contribute up to $3,200, subject to employer-imposed limits.
Health FSA Rollover
Revenue Procedure 23-34 raises the maximum carryover amount to $640 for 2024. Employers can choose to set lower carryover limits. Unused funds exceeding the maximum are subject to the IRS’ use-or-lose rule and will be forfeited.
