USF contracts with My Commuter
Check (MYCC) to administer the pre-tax commuter benefit. With this benefit, you can add transit passes
and fares directly to your Clipper Card. If you prefer, you can add fares to a MYCC pre-paid MasterCard (more details below). Eligible full-time faculty and staff who do not have a parking permit may qualify for a USF Commuter subsidy up to $65. The maximum pre-tax order is $130, which includes the subsidy, if appropriate.
If you haven’t previously enrolled
and would like to, please complete the Pre-tax Commuter Plan and Subsidy Enrollment Form.
**Please note that despite the MUNI fare increase, no action is required for the employee for upcoming and/or reoccurring orders.** My Commuter Check will update the orders automatically for those who have MUNI products (i.e. MUNI Adult Monthly "M" Fast Pass, Adult “A” Fast Pass with Ride on BART in San Francisco). Should you have any additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Managing Your My Commuter Check Account
You are responsible for managing
your My Commuter Check account. This
means you must place your orders, make changes, or cancel orders by the 10th of
each month, by 9 p.m. Pacific time, which will take effect the following
month. If you miss the 10th deadline,
you will not receive the following month's order.
By placing your order with MYCC,
you agree and certify that the transit orders/products will be used by you only
for the purposes of commuting to and from work. Additionally, you accept the
terms and conditions of the Clipper cardholder license agreement or the
MasterCard Cardholder Agreement if you order the MasterCard debit card. No
replacement cards nor replacement value will be issued. There are no refunds,
retroactive or prospective payments of the subsidy. If you have a parking
permit, you are not eligible for the subsidy, but you are still able to use
your own pre-tax dollars for your own monthly commuting expenses on public
transportation. In accordance with IRS regulations, your pre-tax commuter
dollars are not refundable, so plan your transit needs carefully.
Any missed employee pre-tax
and/or post-tax commuter deductions will be deducted from subsequent payroll
checks. Situations when you might miss a payroll deductions would be a leave of
absence, insufficient earnings, termination of assignment, or termination of
employment. You can change your orders online at My Commuter Check or by calling
Customer Service at (800) 531-2828.
In the event that your Clipper card is lost or stolen, immediately report it by calling (877) 878-8883 or logging into your “My Clipper” account and clicking on “Report Lost, Stolen or Damaged Card.”
In order to continue receiving commuter benefits, you must have an active Clipper card. Clipper will mail you a replacement card. The new card will be ready to ship in approximately two days. You may also pick up a new Clipper card at no cost to you by stopping by the Human Resources office located at Lone Mountain Main, Room 339 between the hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday, or by visiting a participating transit center. To locate a participating transit center, please visit www.clippercard.com. Please note that transit centers may have a nominal fee for a Clipper card.
Once you have received your new Clipper card, it is your responsibility to immediately register it with both Clipper card and MYCC. There will be no retroactive or prospective payments of the subsidy due to your failure to register your Clipper card. Failure to register your new Clipper card will prevent you from using it and you may not receive the subsidy for the month.
Please note: MUNI requires you to use the pass (tag your card) by the
16th of the month, or the pass is no longer valid for that month. MUNI does not
issue refunds, nor will MYCC. Please see the MUNI website for more details.
