Flexible Spending Accounts

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) allow MIT employees to contribute a predetermined percentage of pretax pay to an account that is then used to pay for qualifying expenses.

MIT's FSAs are administered by HealthEquity (formerly WageWorks). The button below will take you to their site, where you can choose to log in to either WageWorks or HealthEquity. If you have previously used a WageWorks account to log in, you can continue to log into WageWorks for now. If you are new to HealthEquity/WageWorks, please set up a new account under HealthEquity. See login help.


Health Care Flexible Spending Account

A Health Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a pre-tax benefit account used to pay for eligible medical, dental, and vision care expenses that aren’t covered by your insurance plan or elsewhere. It’s a smart, simple way to save money while keeping you and your family healthy. Learn more.

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account

The MIT Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) allows eligible employees to set aside funds — before taxes — for planned dependent care services received for dependent children under the age of 13 while you work or search for work. Learn more.

Portable Child Care Subsidy

MIT's Portable Child Care Subsidy (PCCS) program provides a benefit to eligible employees to address the high costs of childcare—an ongoing challenge for many employees and families. For eligible employees who apply and are approved, MIT will fund Dependent Care FSAs with pre-tax contributions ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 per calendar year. Learn more.

Tip: Keep Your Receipts

A good rule of thumb for both FSAs is to keep itemized receipts with dates of service, type of service received, and name of the person receiving services, as well as other supporting documentation related to your expenses and reimbursement requests, on hand. The IRS may request itemized receipts to verify select expenses. Credit card receipts, canceled checks, and balance forward statements do not meet the requirements for acceptable documentation.
