days to submit any expenses that were incurred during that HSA year. This 60-day window is referred to as the run-off
period. Once the run-off period (October 30, 2014) has expired, you can no longer submit any
expenses for that HSA year. See the Carry Forward and Forfeiture section to learn
more about final processing at the end of an HSA year. In addition, any unused Health Spending Account (HSA) dollars from 2012-2013 that were not spent by August 31, 2014 and claimed prior to October 30, 2014 will be forfeited back to the Board as per Canada Revenue Agency rules. Health Spending Account dollars from the 2013-2014 school year can be carried forward for one (1) year; expenses cannot. For tax purposes, you need to keep your receipts for seven (7) years.
