Although the NCFlex Health Care Flexible Spending Account uses a carry-forward feature, the Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account follows a grace period as in previous years. This grace period, however, was extended for the 2021 plan year from March 15 to December 31 of the following year.
If you participated in the DDCFSA for 2021, you have until December 31 to incur expenses on any leftover 2021 funds, and until March 31, 2023 to file claims for your 2021 account.
Information on eligible DDCFSA items can be found in the NCFlex Enrollment Guide. The NCFlex FSA Claims Kit, claims form, and details of how to upload a claim can be found in the FSA section of the NCFlex website.
