 If I don't use the money in the account for December, and I don't get a chance to go shopping until January, will those dollars go away?  Or will they be held over to the next month?

I believe *don't have them myself but my mom did*.....they stay there for awhile. I think up to 3 months, but they may have changed that.

They usually roll over up to a certain amount. You won't lose them by the month for not being able to use it.

Whatever is leftover will rollover to the next month.

I think it's suppose to disappear, but I've heard some people say that they still have whatever they didn't use too.
