"Passed/Past filing time limits" (this is a phrase we use at work to say that a claim was denied because it was not filed in a timely manner).
"Passed/Past timely filing" (the same meaning as above, just worded differently)
This has quite a few people stumped. I have been using "passed" in both cases. I've been trying to think how the phrases "past due" and "passed away" are used, but it's no help.

Passed is the past tense and past participle of the verb to pass:
We passed the town we once lived in.
We have passed the point of no return.
Past is the adjective, adverb, noun and preposition:
My past [adjective] life flashed past [adverb[ as images of a distant past [noun] when I drove past [preposition] my old school.
Hope that helps, Cheryl.
passed = verb, an action
Passed filing time limits" (this is a phrase we use at work to say that a claim was denied because it was not filed in a timely manner). - assuming that the filing has occured.
Past timely filing" (the same meaning as above, just worded differently) - the event has occured in the past,
I'm not too sure of the interpretation of the sentences above, and have therefore assumed an understanding.
"Past filing time limits" is an abbreviation for "this claim was denied because it was filed past the filing time limit", in which "past" is an preposition. You could replace "past" with "beyond", and have the same meaning, and "beyond" is more obviously a preposition.
"Past timely filing" is similar, "past" can again be replaced with "beyond".
The use of "passed" in these contexts could be confusing, because "passed filing time limits" could only be correctly read as meaning that when the test "is this claim within the filing time limit" was applied, the claim passed, ie succeeded, in the same sense as "passed identity checks".
The amount is 30 days passed due. Most people use the former however and I doubt you'd get called on it.
I found her definitions very useful.
People are waiting to help.
