OneBeacon's® commuter program makes it easy for you to save money on your commuting costs. We offer a pretax commuter program which is administered by WageWorks. You will be able to access your commuter benefits, place orders and check your account simply by logging onto WageWorks.
If you take public transportation, ride in a vanpool or pay to park, this plan helps you use pretax dollars and save on your commuting costs! Your pretax payroll deductions will be taken automatically from your last paycheck of the month.
2018 Commuter Limits
The IRS allows up to $260 per month in pretax contributions towards public transportation (bus, train, subway, ferry, etc.) and up to $260 per month pretax toward parking expenses.
If your expenses exceed the pretax limits, the balance will be taken from your paycheck on an after-tax basis. For example, if your train pass costs $300 per month, $260 will be deducted pretax and $40 on an after-tax basis.
With WageWorks, you have the option to have your passes mailed directly to your home or be reimbursed for eligible commuting expenses. All employees are eligible to participate in the commuter.
