Family support

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.

Parenting leave support

You don’t have to go it alone when it comes to preparing for—and returning from—parental leave. With Parentaly, you can leverage career coaching sessions and online toolkits to confidently plan for your upcoming leave and successfully re-onboard after your return—all at no cost to you. Be sure to register for the program at least three months before you expect your leave to start.

Parentaly also provides quarterly training opportunities and online resources for people managers and all other employees who want to gain a better understanding of how to support expecting employees and their teams throughout the leave journey.

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 2024.

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 2023 expenses is March 30, 2024. The deadline to submit for reimbursement of 2024 expenses is March 30, 2025.

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.

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.
