What is a Flexible Spending Account?

A Flexible Spending Account is a San Diego Community College District sponsored benefit that allows you to pay for medical expenses (such as doctor's office co-pays, prescription drugs, eye glasses, braces, and so much more) with your pre-tax income. Because this benefit uses pre-tax dollars, a Flexible Spending Account is a great way for you to save money on your healthcare costs, as well as increase your take home pay! San Diego Community College District also offers a Dependent Care spending account, which can be used to pay day care expenses for eligible dependents.


What is the maximum amount I can deposit into my Health Care and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account each year?

The IRS limits for 2023 are:

  • $3,050 for health care FSA
  • $5,000 for dependent care FSA
  • $280 per month for commuter benefits
