Frequently Asked Questions

My dependent child will turn 13 during the current plan year but will still have a babysitter throughout the plan year. Can I use the Dependent Care FSA for the entire year for that child?

No. Only expenses for services provided before a dependent child reaches age 13 are eligible.

Note: For 2020 and 2021 only, the IRS raised the dependent care age limit from under 13 to under 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic relief efforts.
