What is a Dependent Care FSA?
A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account, or “FSA,” is a pre-tax benefit account used to pay for dependent care services while you are at work. The money you contribute to a Dependent Care FSA is not subject to payroll taxes, so you end up paying less in taxes and taking home more of your paycheck. Under this type of account, a “dependent “ is a child under 13 years of age (until the day of their 13th birthday) and adult dependents who can't take care of themselves. Please keep in mind that they must live with you and be claimed as dependents on your tax return. Please review the eligible expense list [list] to see what's covered under your Dependent Care FSA.
