The grace period for the 2020 DCAA plan year has been extended. The 2020 plan year now covers expenses incurred between January 1, 2020-September 15, 2021. Additionally, you may seek reimbursement for children who turned 13 during the 2020 plan year. The last day to submit DCAA claims is September 30, 2021 for expenses incurred through September 15, 2021.
We are pleased to announce that as a result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, and the American Rescue Act of 2021, we are able to enhance the 2021 DCAA to include these two important changes:
• The maximum contribution levels have been increased from $2,500 to $5,250 for single or married filing separately and from $5,000 to $10,500 for married filing jointly or head of household.
• Additionally, you are now able to change your DCAA election amount without a qualifying change in status event reason. The change event reason will appear as: “No reason (Consolidated Appropriations Act)”. Use this to enroll, change, re-start, or terminate your 2021 DCAA. Changes will not be retroactive; they will be applied to the next available payroll date for processing.
