Who Is Eligible

For employee eligibility: as with the Flexible Spending Accounts, eligibility in the Commuter Savings Accounts (CSA), only requires that you are an otherwise eligible employee of an employer that offers these accounts as part of their benefits program. A unique feature of the CSA is that there is not an “annual enrollment period” for the program. Eligible employees may enroll in or make changes to their contributions at any time throughout the year.
