How Do Transportation Reimbursement Accounts Work? • Complete an election form authorizing deduction on a pre-tax basis from each paycheck. Your contributions will be placed into your account throughout the plan year • As you incur* expenses, submit a claim form, receipts, and/or required documentation to ProBusiness • ProBusiness will reimburse you for your expenses * Incurred means a Plan Participant has been provided services that gives rise to an expense, not when the Plan Participant is formally billed, charged for, or pays for the services.
Changing your Transportation Reimbursement Election • Unlike the Flexible Spending Reimbursement Account plans, where an employee must experience a qualified status change to make an election change, an employee contributing in to the Transportation Reimbursement Account may make changes just by choice. • The frequency of how often an employee can make an election change for this type of reimbursement account, is determined by the plan sponsors (your employer) account design.
