Review Your Commuter Account Balance
Employees who enrolled in the NYC Commuter Benefits Program and had payroll deductions must review their commuter account balance regularly.
To check your commuter account balance, log into your Edenred account at www.commuterbenefitsnyc.com/login.aspx. If your current commuter account balance exceeds your monthly commuting costs, take the following steps:
1. If you haven’t done so, lower or suspend your Commuter Benefits payroll deductions at www.commuterbenefitsnyc.com/signup.aspx.
2. Use the accumulated balance for qualified transit and parking before adding more funds to the account.
Be reminded that employees who separate from City service have 90 days from the date of separation to use pre-tax funds in their commuter account. For more detailed Commuter Benefits Program information visit www.commuterbenefitsnyc.com.
