Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA)

What happens if my spouse also has a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA) through his/her employer?

Both you and your spouse are welcome to take advantage of DCFSA benefits, but as per IRS rules, there is a $5,000 joint contribution limit for 2022.

In other words, if both you and your spouse contribute the same amount, the maximum you could each contribute would be $2,500.

If you share custody of a dependent with someone else, then you may each claim $2,500 toward dependent care in 2022.
