Commuter Benefits Account

Save money on your commute

With this account, you can use pre-tax money to pay eligible commuting costs.

How It Works

  • You choose an annual contribution amount that is deducted from your paycheck in equal amounts throughout the year and placed in an account just for eligible parking and/or transit costs for your commute to and from work.
  • Because the amounts are deducted before taxes are calculated, your taxable income is reduced each pay period so you pay less in taxes.

Dear Team Member,

The last 18 months have pulled us in all sorts of directions and presented several new challenges. Many of you have had to adapt to an ever-changing lifestyle that includes homeschooling kids, working overtime, taking care of loved ones, and worrying about finances. At Grainger, we recognize the toll these changes take on your personal wellbeing. And while I’m proud to say you’ve continued to provide exceptional customer service despite these challenges, it’s just as important to put the same attention on yourself.

We want you to be your best, not only at work but at home. That’s why we’ve made some enhancements to our benefits programs to better support your emotional, financial, physical, and social wellbeing. These new programs will provide access to short-term cash, one-on-one financial coaching, or stress management support. Over the last year, we built a strong foundation of wellbeing resources to ensure you have more choice and flexibility with your benefits.

This Annual Enrollment Decision Guide will help you navigate the robust benefits that Grainger offers and support you in making your elections for 2022. Annual Enrollment will run from October 11 to 29, 2021. Now is the time for you to take action for you and your family’s wellbeing. We have more plans underway to continue to enhance our wellbeing offerings and we’re excited to share these with you soon.
As always, thank you for all you continue to do for each other, our organization, and our customers.

Stay well,
Kathleen Carroll
SVP & Chief Human Resources Officer
