Why is my SmartBenefits balance less than expected this month?

The participant may have received a Rush Hour Promise Credit or 15 Minute Grace Period Credit in addition to their normal SmartBenefits. Participants receive their accumulated credits for the prior month on the first day of the new benefit month. The credit is displayed and used before their normal SmartBenefits are displayed and used. Your participant can log in to their SmarTrip Online account to confirm that they have received both a credit and their normal SmartBenefits.
