Flexible Spending Accounts – Childcare

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) allow benefits-eligible Tufts employees to set aside pre-tax income for two purposes: health care or dependent care. Thus, a Health Care or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account can result in considerable savings for employees with high health care, childcare, or elder/adult care costs.

For more information about qualifying expenses and qualifying dependents, visit Crosby Benefits, Tufts' FSA vendor.

Employees may enroll in FSAs either at date of hire, during annual Benefits Open Enrollment time, or as a result of a change of status such as adding or removing a dependent.

Note: changes must be consistent with the qualifying life event.
