COMMUTER BENEFIT TO DECREASE ON JAN. 1
A notice to our riders:
Those who receive the federal commuter benefit may
know that the maximum allowable benefit will drop to $130 per month (compared
with the current maximum of $245 per month) in January 2014 unless Congress
passes legislation to sustain the higher benefit.
PRTC is alerting you to this possibility so you can:
--Urge Congress to sustain the higher benefit by
sending an email or letter to your elected officials;
--Learn how to maximize the amount of the benefit you
can receive if the higher benefit is approved after January 1 but is made
retroactive to the start of the year. PRTC is not endorsing Forbes.com but
believes the information in this article is valuable for our passengers.
