On December 27, 2020 the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021 was passed and includes new and extended benefits for Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA) plans.
Plan Options Now Available (view our Table of Provisions)
A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA) provides significant savings to employees and employers alike. Employees set aside funds on a pretax basis to spend on qualifying dependent care expenses throughout the plan year. Employers save on payroll taxes for every dollar of employee participation, often enough to cover the plan’s cost.
Parents with children in full-time child care spend a great deal of money each year, on average it costs:
Use your DCFSA to pay for a variety of care services including preschool, summer day camp, before/after school programs and child or adult day care.
The only caveat is that the care must be provided as you (and your spouse if applicable) are working, looking for work or attending school full time.
