Having a family can provide endless amounts of joy. And a fair number of challenges. Wherever you are on the family spectrum—from trying to start a family to taking care of your elderly parents—you’ll find plenty of support to help you along the way.
Money for making a family
Through the Make a Family program, you can get reimbursed up to $10,000 per calendar year for eligible adoption, surrogacy, IVF or co-maternity, and egg or sperm freezing services. While services related to infertility are not eligible for reimbursement under the Make a Family benefit, they may be covered under your medical plan. Once you submit your documentation to HealthEquity WageWorks and your expenses are approved, you’ll receive your reimbursement, minus applicable taxes, in your paycheck.

All Autodesk medical plans provide some level of coverage for infertility-related services. If you’d like to learn more about the services covered under your plan, review the summary plan description for your medical plan. For some extra help, reach out to CareCounsel at 1-888-227-3334, or start a chat through the CareCounsel website. UnitedHealthcare (UHC) members can also request a consultation with a UHC Fertility Solutions nurse by calling 1-866-774-4626. Kaiser members can contact their member support team with questions about their fertility coverage.
Dependent care flexible spending account (FSA)
Save money for eligible dependent care expenses by contributing pretax dollars to the dependent care FSA.
Make convenient paycheck contributions. The money comes out of your paycheck before taxes, so you owe less to the IRS and your state.
Contribute up to $5,000 combined between you and your spouse in 2022.
Use for lots of eligible expenses. Most dependent care services that make it possible for you (and your spouse, if married) to work or attend school full-time are eligible for reimbursement, including day care facilities, in-home babysitting, day camp, after-school care, and practical nursing care for an adult. View the full list of eligible expenses.
Submit claims by the deadline. The deadline to submit for reimbursement of 2022 expenses is March 31, 2023.
Any unused funds are forfeited. You will lose any unused funds remaining in your dependent care FSA after the claims deadline has passed.
Keep in mind
According to IRS rules, once you make your annual election, it can’t be changed until the next open enrollment period, unless you have a qualifying life event before then.

Autodesk offers a variety of leave options, so you can take time to bond with your new addition.
