The run-out-period for the 2011 Flexible Spending Account program ends on March 31, 2012. The run-out-period is the period of time you have to submit reimbursement requests for all eligible FSA expenses incurred during the 2011 plan year (January 1–December 31, 2011) and grace period (January 1–February 29, 2012).

To submit qualified expenses against your 2011 Medical Reimbursement Account and/or Dependent Care Reimbursement Account, you must submit a claim form to WageWorks. Claim forms are available on the Office of Human Resources website and on the WageWorks website. Claim forms must be sent directly to WageWorks. Any funds remaining in your 2011 Flexible Spending Account after the run-out-period ends on March 31, 2012, will be forfeited.
