Commuter Benefits Program

Brandeis' commuter benefits program enables eligible faculty and staff to purchase MBTA passes and pay for commuter parking via pretax payroll deduction, thereby reducing their overall tax burden. For 2020, up to $270 of the monthly cost of each benefit may be excluded from state and federal taxable income. To qualify for these benefits, the expenses must be employment-related and transacted via payroll deduction. The program is administered by WageWorks.

Group Auto, Home and Renters Insurance

Employees may be eligible for discounts on auto, home and/or renters insurance through Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. For more information call or email Christine Foskett, Liberty Mutual, 508-416-1246 (office), 508-330-7731 (mobile).
