Can my childcare vouchers expire?
7

curlyrebel · 10/11/2018 22:01

I've been collecting childcare vouchers through work since September/ October last year. As our families have been helping with looking after my DD whilst my DH and I are both working, I've not had to use them yet.

However I read that some childcare providers don't accept ones over a year old. Is that true? Does that apply to most nurseries? I'm a bit worried I'm going to lose them...

It’s not the childcare providers, I personally wouldn’t know when they were claimed, but the voucher companies themselves might have an expiry date for them.

We accumulated a lot over several years with DC1, and not had any problems using them down the line

Think my DH has Care4 and I have Edenred, no problems with those to my knowledge

Prob worth checking with your voucher company

Mine expired one year from issue. Mine were provided by Sodexo.

@roses2 did you contact them to see if you could get them back? I feel like it wasn't clear when I signed up about any expiry.

I would contact them. It seems a bit cheeky. For us it has been a part of balancing costs now that we have DC2, using the vouchers we accumulated since DC1

I didn't contact them as I managed to use my vouchers before they expired. Sorry I wasn't very clear there!
