Thank you so much for this important information! It's another example of the invaluable help we get from the Cleveland Park listserv.

This Metro announcement says that “ Customers that participate in SmartBenefits are currently unable to transfer balances to a new card online and will be notified at a later date. Participants should login to their SmarTrip account to make sure their contact information is up to date.” When I turned 65 I started getting the senior discount. Is that considered SmartBenefits? Do I need to wait until notified to exchange my card in order not to lose my senior discount status?
