Both Spouses Contributing to FSA
|Question: My spouse and I each work for the university. Can we each contribute the annual limit to a Flexible Spending Account (FSA)?
Yes. If you and your spouse each have a Health Care FSA, you may each contribute the annual maximum to your accounts, however, you may not submit the same claims to both accounts, and you may not transfer funds between accounts. The Dependent Care FSA annual limit is per household, and you are limited to the annual contribution amount between the two of you. For more information on annual contribution limits, see Flexible Spending Account Eligibility and Enrollment.
