What is an FSA?

An FSA is a tax-advantaged benefit plan whose funds are exempt from taxes. Your out-of-pocket health care expenses are eligible for reimbursement if the expenses are for medically necessary care or treatment incurred during the Plan Year. If you have dependents, your out-of-pocket expenses for their health care and treatments are eligible too!

What is Dependent Care Assistance?

A Dependent Care Assistance Plan (DCAP) is a tax-exempt benefit you can use to pay your out-of-pocket expenses for the custodial care of dependents claimed on your federal income tax return. Your account in the Plan is funded by tax-free dollars that you set aside from your paycheck in order to use as payment for eligible day care type services.



Plan Rules:

  • Eligibility: Employees as described in this guide, spouse and tax dependent children (up to age 26; Dependent Care children up to age 13 and adults for adult daycare)
