Does the Leap Year change the deadline to request reimbursement for any remaining funds in my 2015 Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)?

Yes. Requests for reimbursement from your Health Care or Dependent Care FSA for calendar year 2015 must be submitted no later than June 29, 2016. Eligible health and dependent care expenses for which you are requesting reimbursement must have been incurred during the 2015 plan year or during the grace period (Jan. 1, 2015, to March 15, 2016).
