Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA)

What can I purchase with my Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA)?

You can use your DCFSA to pay for a wide range of child and adult care services. For example, eligible costs include:

  • Before/after school programs
  • Preschool 
  • Summer camp (day camp) 
  • Daycare (adult or child)

Please note that your dependent must be age 13 and under, or an adult living in your home for whom you have custodial care.

Some ineligible costs, on the other hand, include:

  • Medical care
  • Overnight camps
  • Kindergarten (some exceptions)
  • Private school tuition
  • Housekeeping

There are many resources online that can help you decide the best way for you to use your DCFSA balance.

Of course, if you ever have any questions about eligibility, we are also happy to help! Please reach out to Benepass Support for any assistance.
