Fighting Cancer With The Jimmy Fund
Charitable Giving Update: Dressing For Sox-cess

 

Description: JF_RedSoxLast year, Crosby formed a Charity Committee comprised of Crosby volunteers to manage our annual giving initiatives. Rather than donate to one charity at the end of each year, the Committee has chosen to focus on quarterly campaigns.

Our Spring initiative will benefit The Jimmy Fund's Rally Against CancerSM which will coincide with the Red Sox home opener. Crosby has registered our team -- Crosby Benefits The Jimmy Fund; any employee who donates $5 or more will be encouraged to wear Red Sox gear to work on Friday, April 13th (the Red Sox home opener). Crosby will match all donations made by employees.


For more information or to get your organization involved, visit The Jimmy Fund's Rally Against CancerSM website.

 


 

Enhancing The Participant Experience
New Reimbursement Portal Mobile App Coming Soon

 

Description: ReimbursementWe are excited to announce that a Mobile App for Reimbursement account holders will soon be available. We are working to ensure the App is vigorously tested prior to its release. The App will be available for both iPhone and Android device users and will allow participants to access information via their smart phone. Highlights include:

  • Account-at-a-Glance (account data and available funds)
  • Recent Transaction Review
  • Alert and Notification access
  • Help Ticket review and new ticket creation
  • Username/password will be separate from MyCrosbyBenefits.com

Obtaining the Mobile App will be simple. Account holders will be able to download it from their device's App store or can scan a QR code found within the Mobile App section of the Reimbursement Account portal (via

mycrosbybenefits.com).

More information about the App as well as a sneak peak will be provided prior to the rollout.

 


 

Possible Pre-Tax Commuter Benefit Increase

Approval By House Of Representatives Still Needed 

 

Description: CommuterThe U.S. Senate passed legislation on March 14th that would increase the monthly pre-tax amount for commuter expenses to $240 a month. However, the legislation still has to be passed by the House of Representatives. If passed, the Transit Pre-Tax increase would be retroactive to January 1, 2012. This is a step in the right direction but commuters won't be fully satisfied until the U.S. House makes this transit parity official. We'll continue to monitor progress and notify you of any pre-tax limit changes.

 


 

In other news . . . A redesigned Transit & Parking ordering portal will be available to participants later this year.

Transit highlights include:

  • Home Zip Code driven ordering
  • Direct access to transit authority information
  • Option to rate transit authorities
  • A new "re-order" option

Description: WC_SneekPeek_trn

Parking Highlights include:

  • Work Zip Code driven ordering with location filtering
  • Options for employer specific lots
  • Option to rate parking providers
  • Access to more parking provider information such as hours, rates and payment options

Since this site is still in its final development & testing phase we'll be sure to notify you about transition dates. If you have any questions, you may contact your client consultant.
