Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account

A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows you to set aside pre-tax money to pay for eligible dependent care expenses for your qualified dependents. Eligible dependent care expenses are those incurred to allow you (and your spouse, if married) to work, look for work or attend school as a full-time student. Examples of eligible expenses may include child care facility fees, before-school and after-school care or local day camp. Review a comprehensive list of eligible expenses

You can contribute anywhere from $250 up to $5,000 annually, per family, to a Dependent Care FSA.
