During November of 2015 I elected, during open enrollment, to contribute to the DCFSA. My wife was laid off during maternity leave in January of 2016 and did not find work until July. I kept contributing because we figured once she found a job we would still need childcare.
However, she found a job which affords her the opportunity to work from home. This, as well as help from my mother-in-law, means we do not need a daycare. During her open enrollment I ceased contributions but by this point we have around $3000 in there.
I don't want to lose this money!! Is there any way to get it back?
