Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account

  • Who qualifies as a dependent under a Dependent Care FSA?

    The following people qualify as "dependents" under your Dependent Care FSA:

    • A child under the age of 13 who resides with you and for whom you are entitled to a personal tax exemption as a dependent. Keep in mind that if you are divorced, the child is a qualifying individual with respect to you if the child lives with you even if you have permitted the noncustodial parent to take the exemption.
    • A spouse, parents, or other tax-dependent adults who reside with you and who are physically or mentally incapable of self-care. Learn more about eligible dependents.
