When is it too late to apply for reimbursements?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Oct 13, 2010 1:56 am

I haven't sent any forms yet because I have been lazy. My earliest callback was a month ago. Is it too late?

One of my firms listed December. I would get on it asap, but I doubt it's too late at this point.

Part of my hellish office life drudgery before LS was processing expense reports, and I was always baffled why people could never get them in on time. Well...now I get it, hah. Damn these things are easy to procrastinate on. I just sent some in from over a month ago (in other words, I think you'll be fine as long as you get them in soon)

Yeah, same. I had mine about a month ago. Sending them in this weekend. It's not ideal, but I don't think it matters too much in the grand scheme of things.

yes.

so, get this: my receipts from my first CB where all in my breast pocket of my suit, for safe keeping traveling back to campus from NYC. Said suit went to the drycleaners with receipts in pocket. Receipts were intact BUT whatever the use to dry clean literally erased all remnants of the printing on the receipts. I'm going to send the blank ones in with an explanation, conservative estimates of costs and a basically "do the right thing here please?" Who thinks the firm will actually reimburse me and who thinks they are going to laugh maniacally while telling me to go get my fucking shinebox?

What about sending in a bank statement? Sending in blank receipts is about as bad as sending in a yellow post-it-note.
