You must submit a Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA) claim every time you wish to request reimbursement of an expense. There is no automated process. Many individuals file claims monthly to eliminate weekly claim submission.
However, it truly depends on your specific needs and whether you can wait until the end of the month for reimbursement or if you need to receive funds weekly. Regardless of the amount on your claim you will only be reimbursed up to the amount in your account at that time.
