Need to change your dependent care fsa elections?
In most cases, you may only make changes to your benefits during Open Enrollment. However, dependent care FSA changes based on a significant change in dependent care expenses allow you to make changes to your election.
Notify the LiveWell team
You will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org within 31 days of your change in dependent care expenses and provide documentation showing the change in expenses.
If gaining expenses, documentation must include your name and the effective date of the new expenses. Documents that may suffice include:
a letter from provider indicating an increase in cost
a letter from provider verifying enrollment in a new program
If losing expenses, documentation must include your name and the loss of expenses effective date. Documents that may suffice include:
- a letter from provider indicating a decrease in cost
- a letter from provider indicating closure, reduction, or discontinued participation in a program
Update your benefits
You will receive an enrollment notice via email that specifies your deadline to make changes to your elections. Any enrollments or changes made will take effect the first of the following month.
