Commuter Benefits and Carpool Plan Administration: How It Works

 

An employee elects a monthly contribution for transit and a separate contribution for parking up to the IRS limit. Clarity will update your payroll provider and the funds are deducted from the employees check on a pre-tax basis saving the employee on average 30% in taxes. Employees can start, stop or change their elections on a monthly basis. Unused funds carry over from month-to-month. 

Upon enrollment a Clarity Card is mailed to the employee’s home. The card is programed to work anywhere you pay for mass transit, parking or ride share programs. Simply swipe your card and save, it’s that easy!
