What can I spend my balance/benefit(s) on?

Looking for information about how to spend your Health FSA, Dependent FSA, Limited Purpose FSA, or Health Savings Account balances? Check our pre-tax section for more information!

For benefits such as Wellness, Lifestyle, Work From Home, or any other perk benefits that your employer offers, what you're able to spend your balance on will vary from benefit to benefit!

Benepass works with employers to create unique benefits to cover many different kinds of purchases! Because each perk benefit may be slightly different, you can find what's eligible directly in the app.

If you are curious to know about what is eligible under each of your benefits, you can check your specific benefit policy from within our app and website. Simply navigate to the Accounts page from the app or website, and click or tap on the desired benefit. From there, navigate to "What can I buy?" and you will see two options: "See merchant guidelines" and "Browse categories." Click on these to expand and view more details and ideas!

There isn't a list of exact items that we limit you to. Instead, your employer lets us know what categories of spending they'd like to approve, and you can decide what you'd like to purchase within those categories.

For example, your employer might offer a Fitness benefit. For you, that might mean paying for a gym membership, while others might prefer to buy at-home workout equipment instead. If you're not sure if something is eligible, feel free to check in with us before spending, and also let us know if your card is getting declined somewhere you think should be eligible.

We also recommend checking out our Explore page to get inspired. While it's not a comprehensive list, we hope it will give you some ideas.
