How The Program Works
Employees meeting eligibility requirements will create a Dependent Care Assistance Program (DCAP) Account with benefits administrator P&A Group. You will submit eligible child care expense claims to P&A Group. Upon claim approval, P&A Group will provide reimbursements via a check or direct deposit to your bank account.
Similar to the Health Flexible Spending Account and the Dependent Care Assistance Program, you may also make payroll contributions to your account PRE TAX. Therefore, you may also save money on your child care expenses by using income before it is taxed through payroll. You can learn more about the entire program and process here.
