administrator for consumer-directed health, commuter and other
employee spending account benefits, including FSAs, HSAs, HRAs,
parking and transit programs.
Crosby chose to become a division of WageWorks to benefit from the
extensive expertise, technology, and service resources a leading
national administrator can offer. Crosby will continue to provide
service to clients and participants from our office in Newton. We
will operate as a local office, with close ties to our clients. Our
phone numbers, websites, contact information and staff will remain

improvements and changes with regard to our branding. For example,
our new name is Crosby Benefit Systems, a Division of WageWorks, Inc.

checks will include our new name starting in July and we will also
send you Compliance Alerts from WageWorks as they become available.
We will continue to keep you apprised of any changes. If you have any
questions about this transition, please don't hesitate to contact
