Frequently Asked Questions

Are day care expenses for an elderly parent eligible under a Dependent Care FSA?

If an elderly parent lives with a participant and relies on that person for at least 50% of their support, then the Dependent Care FSA may be used for day care expenses. However, the care must be necessary to allow the participant to work, and cannot be custodial nursing care. Also, if the participant is married, the care must be necessary because the spouse also works, is looking for work or is a full-time student.
