View Benefits (Including MBTA and Parking) and Report Benefit Events?

The Benefits worklet provides access to your benefit elections in Workday.

Please Note:
You must make MBTA elections that you want to take place for the upcoming month 
by the 10th day of the month you are currently in.
For example, if it’s May and you know you want to change your MBTA
pass for June, you must make the change no later than May 10th. If
you make the change on May 15th for example, you would not be able
to get that new pass until July, since the deadline for June would have
already passed.

You must make Parking elections that you want to take place for 
the upcoming month by the 25th day of the month you are currently in.
For example, if it’s May and you know you want to change your Parking election
for June, you must make the change no later than May 25th. If
you make the change on May 29th for example, you would not be able
to get the deductions until July, since the deadline for June would have
already passed.
