Save money for health care and dependent care expenses with an FSA
The Air Force Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Program is administered by ADP.
What is an FSA?
- An employee benefit that saves you money on eligible health care and day care expenses for you and your family.
- An account where you contribute money from your paycheck BEFORE taxes, incur eligible expenses and get reimbursed.
- It includes a 2 ½ month grace period for the health care and dependent care accounts. During the grace period, eligible expenses incurred from January 1 through March 15 of the following year can be applied towards your prior year's balance. You must be actively participating as of December 31 to be eligible for the grace period. The intent is to help account holders avoid forfeiting any of the funds they deposited in FSA accounts. It is important to carefully consider the amount you choose to elect. Refer to the FSA calculator to estimate the amount that is right for you.
The annual health care FSA pretax contribution limit for 2020 is $2,750. If you and your spouse each have a health care FSA, you can each contribute $2,750.
