2021 Dependent Care FSA
The grace period for the 2021 Dependent Care FSA has been extended to Dec. 31, 2022. As a result, you will be able to submit eligible dependent care FSA expenses incurred with dates of service Jan. 1, 2021, through Dec. 31, 2022, for reimbursement from your unused 2021 DCFSA balance. All claims for the 2021 Dependent Care FSA must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2022.
2021 FSA and Limited FSA
Any unused balance from your 2021 Limited Purpose or Medical FSA has been carried over into a 2022 plan for use with eligible expenses incurred in 2022. The deadline for filing any claims with a 2021 date of service was April 30, 2022. Any 2021 claims filed after that date must be denied per IRS rules. You may use any existing balance on approved plan expenses during 2022.
