Dependent Care Assistance Program
The Dependent Care Assistance Program (DCAP) is a plan that saves you money by allowing you to set aside pre-tax funds into a spending account to pay for allowable child or elder care (e.g. babysitting, daycare, in-home care for an older dependent incapable of self-care).
Flexible Spending Account
The Flexible Spending Account (FSA or Health Care Reimbursement Account) is a program that allows you to use pre-tax money to pay for certain medical expenses. Enrolling in the FSA can lead to savings of up to 40% on each dollar that is set aside.
Retiree Medical Spending Account (VEBA)
Upon retirement, 25% of cashed-out sick leave is placed into a health reimbursement account, which is a plan that reimburses out-of-pocket health care costs incurred by you, your spouse, and qualified dependents. All contributions, investment earnings, and withdrawals (claims) are tax-free! For more information, visit the Retiree Medical Spending Account (VEBA) site.
