I have 2 issues related to a job change and my FSA with my previous employer
I gave a two week notice on 2/23/2015. The employer chose not to keep me in the office for those 2 weeks, but would pay me through 3/6/2015. My medical & dental coverage would end on 2/28/2015. I had requested $2500 for the flex spending account. We submitted eligible expenses we had through the insurance termination of 2/28/2015...my wife also had physical therapy that went through 2/28/15. The employer refused to release flex spending funds as of my date of notice, though my insurance coverage was through 2/28/15. This doesn't sound correct: shouldn't they release funds from flex through cancellation of medical/dental insurance?
Also, my entire family was on my insurance coverage. The new employers plan isn't as good as my wife's plan, so the entire family went under my spouse's insurance plan (we had not been on it in the past) and it is an HSA. Is there a conflict with the FSA I had under my old employer, and joining my spouse's HSA after the FSA terminated?
