Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

NetApp offers the Dependent Care FSA, administered by WageWorks, to help you pay for eligible dependent care expenses. You decide how much money to contribute each month (up to IRS limits), and your contributions are deducted from your paycheck before taxes—saving you money on care you’d need to pay for anyway.

Whether you have children under age 13, tax-dependent elderly parents or a disabled spouse who resides with you and requires care, this account assists with those eligible expenses. You can enroll in this account and select your contribution every year only during open enrollment (unless you experience a qualified life event such as the birth or adoption of a child). The IRS sets the maximum contribution, which in 2017 and 2018 is $5,000 per family, per year.

Use it or lose it! Carefully estimate your contributions, because any money left at the end of the year will be forfeited. 

Claims Filing Deadline

Claims for eligible expenses incurred from January 1 through December 31 must be received (not postmarked) on or before March 31 of the following year.
