Curious about who actually qualifies as a dependent under the League Spending Accounts? A dependent must meet the following criteria:
- Your spouse or common-law partner
- Your child(ren)
- Depend on you for financial support
- A resident of Canada (this residence requirement does not apply if the person is the child or grandchild of the individual or of the individual’s spouse or common-law partner)
If your grandchild, parent, grandparent, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, niece or nephew (or that of your spouse or common-law partner) depend on you for financial support you can add them as a dependent, however, the addition of these dependents will not increase your coverage amount.
