Can I set up or change a child & elderly care FSA if I am expecting a child?
Yes! Births count as a qualifying life event. Once your new child is born, contact Support within 30 days of the birth and provide proof of birth, such as a birth certificate or letter from the hospital confirming the birth.
- If you don't already have a Child & Elderly Care FSA, you'll be able to set one up.
- If you do have a Child & Elderly Care FSA, you'll be able to make changes to your contributions.
Dependents do not need to be enrolled on your insurance plan in order for you to set up a Child & Elderly Care FSA. However, you can't begin contributing to a new Child & Elderly Care FSA, or make changes to an existing one, until your child is born.
Thank you for the feedback!
