How to get unused pretax balance from previous employer who laid me off ?

So my previous employer laid me off early this year and at that point I had $200+ in my wage works pretax parking card which wageworks sent to the employer. How do I get that money from my previous employer ? Can they give it to me after withholding tax on it ?

    You’re worried about a couple hundred dollars? Move on.

      Because it’s not worth it after you’ve closed the door with an employer. It’s about knowing your value and your time’s worth. Move on and look ahead, not backward.

      No. Never leave it on the table. It’s just a bad habit. Ping HR... and follow through till you get it back. May be you will waste time initially, but it’s a good learning

      I generally spend time on decision making on which fishes to fry and which ones to let go..

      The amount of time you spend to get 200$ back is totally not worth it...i can make 100 times more money in just one hour stock research

      Didn’t have to spend hours lol ... just drop one email ( took like a minute ) to the previous employer and they reimbursed me on the next pay cycle ... I’m glad I invest 1 mins in getting my money back 😎

    You had 90 days to spend the balance. Consider the money gone.

      ^ that. Says in terms when you signed up. Your fault for not using it all up before it expired

      That’s for the transit card not the parking ... wageworks immediately zeroed my parking card
