According to the information in my employer's plan (which, by the way I believe is the only way to take advantage of these accounts. I don't believe they are available to the self-employed, but I could be wrong):

Medical - No income limits, $3,000 annual cap on deposits.

Dependent Care - $5,000 combined family limit (i.e. if your spouse also has a DCFSA the total contribution to the two plans is limited to $5,000). Contributions are limited to the spouse's earned income.

IRS restrictions regarding pre-tax benefits could also prohibit you from contributing the maximum amount based on the combined benefits from FSAs and a 401(k) plan. I don't have the details on these limits.
