Manage your Dependent Care FSA (DCFSA)

A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA) is a type of tax-advantaged savings account where you can set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for qualifying dependent care expenses. These are expenses that allow the employee to be employed or look for work.  

DCFSAs are regulated by IRS Publication 503. They are not subject to Section 125 (ERISA) requirements

A DCFSA is post-funded, meaning that funds are only available to an employee once deductions are made through payroll. Pre-tax deductions are taken from the employee’s payroll throughout the year and those deductions are available to spend that same day. 

If your Dependent Care FSA is managed by Gusto (including the broker integration), visit your Gusto Benefits Card Manager portal to see your balance and submit claims.
