Dependent Care Claims

When completing a dependent care reimbursement request, please make sure it contains the following:

  • Name of provider
  • Dates of daycare
  • Total reimbursement amount
  • Signature of daycare provider or signed receipt attached
  • Your signature

Dependent care expenses are eligible for reimbursement after they have been incurred, not when services are billed or when you pay.

Also, you are only allowed reimbursement for the amount that has been contributed up to the time the claim is submitted. The remaining reimbursement amount requested will remain on-hold until further contributions are made.

Please note: IRS guidelines state you cannot be reimbursed for care provided during a Leave of Absence lasting longer than two weeks.
