What is the deadline for filing claims from 2017 for the medical flexible spending account (medical FSA), limited purpose spending account (L-FSA), or dependent care flexible spending account (DC-FSA)?

April 30, 2018, is the deadline for filing all claims from 2017 for the medial FSA, L-FSA, or DC-FSA. (Though the DC-FSA did not allow a $500 carryover.)

Note: You cannot use your debit card for expenses incurred during the previous year; you must file a paper claim form before the deadline of April 30. You may, however, use your debit card for expenses incurred during the current year.
