Teach me about Flexible Spending Accounts
I've accepted a new job, yay! One of the benefits at the new job is a flexible spending account. I know, very generally, what this is but not any real details. I'm also having trouble actually finding details. Nearly all of the information I find is closer to a vaguely worded sales pitch telling me that the FSA will benefit me, increase my take home pay, lower my expenses, and so on but doesn't actually detail how it does that. The most info I've found is that money is taken out of my income pre-tax in some manner so that I don't pay tax on the money I spent on medical stuff, which at a high level makes sense. I'd really appreciate it if someone with more knowledge can explain this all to me.
Do I have to put money into it first? Do I have to pay money back after it's been spent? Does it limit how much money I can spend?
