- 01.121 out-of-pocket expenses,
The completely unhyphenated entry in OED startled me with its limited “run out of funds” meaning and not the one that I thought was meant here. Merriam-Webster came to the rescue with
requiring an outlay of cash – “out-of-pocket expenses”
with a first-published date of 1885.
