DEPENDENT CARE FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT The IRS states that an eligible dependent for the purpose of a Dependent Care reimbursement Plan is a child under 13 years old and living with you. An eligible dependent, regardless of age, may also include your mentally or physically impaired spouse/dependent/child that is living with you regardless of age and incapable of caring for him or herself. To be eligible to participate in this account all of the following must apply: 1. The expenses must be necessary to allow you and your spouse to work, seek employment, or attend school full time. 2. These providers must declare the funds you pay them as income on their tax returns. A. Eligible providers include: Child care centers Family day care providers Babysitters Nursery schools *this does not include tuition for kindergarten Caregivers for disabled dependent or spouse who lives with you The IRS states the annual maximum amount a family may withhold in a dependent care plan is the lesser of $5,000 per family, or you or your spouse's income. A single parent is eligible for this program with the above limitations. If you and your working spouse have dependent care accounts with your employers, the maximum combined contribution is $5,000. Married individuals filing separate tax returns can each claim a maximum of $2,500 through a flexible spending account. If you are married and your spouse is a full-time student or unable to care for himself, or herself, you may claim $2,400 if you have one (1) dependent, or $4,800 if you have more than one dependent. HEALTH CARE FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT The Health Flexible Spending Account (FSA) gives you the benefit of allocating money pre-tax to reimburse you for out-of-pocket medical expenses for you and your dependents during a Plan year. Dependents include your spouse, children residing with you, or a parent for whom you claim on your taxes as a dependent. You do not need to participate in your Company's group insurance plan in order to participate in the Health Care Flexible Spending Account. Page 6 identifies some of the common medical and health-related expenses that the Internal Revenue Service considers to be eligible for reimbursement through a Health FSA. These expenses are only eligible for reimbursement provided that you have not been reimbursed for them by another source. Expenses incurred for cosmetic purposes are not eligible for reimbursement.
