Overview

As part of WinnCompanies’ benefits package, you have access to a variety of additional programs that can help save you money and provide important protection and services.

Commuter and Parking Reimbursement

The commuter and parking reimbursement accounts allow you to set aside pre-tax money to pay for eligible transit and parking expenses, which saves you an average of 30% on your transportation expenses.

  • It’s easy and flexible. You decide how much to contribute, and the money is deducted from your paycheck automatically each month.
  • Pre-tax deductions are allowed up to the IRS limit of $260 per month for transit and/or $260 per month for parking.
  • Post-tax deductions are allowed up to $145 per month for transit and/or $145 per month for parking, if your costs exceed the IRS limits for pre-tax contributions.
  • Qualified transit expenses include transit passes and vanpool expenses.
  • Qualified parking expenses include parking costs while you are at work.
  • Manage your account on the go — simply download the free WageWorks EZ Receipts mobile app from iTunes or Google Play.
  • You can enroll at any time (not just during Open Enrollment), and your account is not subject to the “use it or lose it” rule that applies to other FSAs.

To Enroll in the WageWorks Commuter FSA:

  1. Log in to www.wageworks.com.
  2. Go to the “Log In/Register” tab at the top of the home page and select “Employee Registration” from the drop-down menu.
  3. Fill in the required fields, including your name, date of birth, home zip code, and ID code (the last four digits of your Social Security number).
  4. Click on “Place Commuter Order” and select either “Transit” or “Parking.”
    • Choose “Transit” if you use public transportation or take a vanpool to work.
    • Choose “Parking” if you pay to park at work or at a train/bus station to get to work.
  5. If you’re buying a commuter pass, choose your operator (e.g., MTA, MBTA, and Amtrak) and the type of commuter card you’d like to purchase. (Note: For MA team members wishing to purchase a Charlie Card, it is recommended that you elect the Commuter Card and purchase your Charlie Card with the debit card, rather than purchasing the monthly Charlie Card through the site. This way, if your monthly Charlie Card stops working at any time, you would be able to get a replacement card through the MBTA.)
  6. Confirm your contact information and you’re done!

Please note: Your deductions will be taken out of the second paycheck from the month prior to the designated month (third for New York team members). For example: If you sign up for commuter benefits in August, the deduction will be reflected in the second paycheck you receive in July.

Full-time and part-time team members are eligible for anniversary awards to recognize their years of service to the company if they:

  • Work more than 20 hours per week
  • And are not a member of a NYC union

*For all team members who are celebrating an anniversary of 10 years or more, they are eligible to receive an anniversary gift (of appropriate value) of tickets to either a Boston Red Sox baseball game at Fenway Park, or a sporting event or concert at Boston’s TD Garden. Please note that all sporting events and concerts at both venues are subject to availability (and certain blackout dates). Prior to your anniversary, you will be contacted by Maxine Buretta, Human Resources Administrator, to coordinate the gift you have selected.
