Flexible Spending Accounts – Dependent Care

An EBPA Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a great way to help your employees save money from their paycheck on a pre-tax basis to cover certain costs associated with providing for their dependents while they are at work.

With a Dependent Care FSA, employees can use tax-free funds to pay for dependent care services. Funds are moved to their Dependent Care FSA before taxes are deducted, which reduces their overall tax burden. Dependent Care FSAs save your company money and employee contributions to Dependent Care FSAs help reduce payroll taxes.

With an EBPA Dependent Care FSA, your employees receive outstanding customer support and online accessibility to their Dependent Care FSA, 365 days a year. With access to real-time account balances and activity, as well as a comprehensive learning center, your employees will have the confidence to continue to re-enroll year after year. 

Your company can increase enrollment by providing an FSA that's easy for employees to understand, access, and use. EBPA makes it quick and easy for your employees to pay for eligible dependent care services. All payment and reimbursement features are synchronized to deliver accurate, real-time account information.

The EBPA Benefits Card

Employees use a prepaid Card when paying for dependent care if the provider accepts a debit or credit card.  
The card is completely integrated for complete flexibility. If an employee's service provider does not accept credit/debit cards, online submission is available through EBPA's claims system or EBPA's Secure Document Submission Portal. Claims can also be uploaded from a Mobile App, faxed or mailed to EBPA.
