Don’t Forget to Restart your Pretax Transit or Parking Order

Now that we’re preparing to return to campus, don’t forget to restart your pretax transit and parking orders through WageWorks/Health Equity! As a reminder, the pretax commuter program allows employees to use pre-tax dollars to pay for transit passes (Metra, Pace, CTA, etc.) and off-campus parking. Individuals purchasing Mies Campus passes through ACAPS already pay on a pretax basis via payroll deductions and therefore should NOT use WageWorks for these passes.

A maximum of $270 pre-tax per month can be set aside for transit and/or parking and these elections may be changed at any time (you do not need to wait until Open Enrollment). Election changes must be made directly with WageWorks/Health Equity and are due by 10:59 p.m. CST by the 10th of each month to be effective for the following month (August orders are due by July 10).

WageWorks/Health Equity transit election dollars may be used for transportation via uberPOOL and Lyft Link, and parking election dollars may be used in conjunction with SpotHero.
