FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Do Jemms carry over month-to-month?

Yes, all unused jemms automatically carry over to the next month.


Do employees need to pay taxes on JemmVouchers?

The short answer is yes. Since JemmVouchers are being provided to you by your employer, the IRS considers them a fringe benefit. In most cases, fringe benefits are taxable as income.

If you believe that a specific JemmVoucher should not be taxable as income, please discuss with your employer.


I ran out of jemms! Can I buy more?

Not yet, but we’re currently working on that functionality. Very soon employees will be able to buy additional jemms with a credit card ($5 per jemm). That way employees will never find themselves in a position where they can’t take part in an activity, or purchase a product, because they’re short just a few jemms.


Can I donate my jemms to charity?

Absolutely! All Jemmworks users have the option to donate ten percent (10%) of their jemms to charity each month. If you’d like to automatically donate 10% of your jemms to charity each month, simply go to “My Charity” on your Jemmworks dashboard, and select one of our eight partnered charities who will receive your generous donation.


Are donations that I make via the Jemmworks platform tax-deductible?

Yes. At the end of the year, you’ll receive a confirmation/receipt from each charity to whom you donated. You may use this confirmation/receipt to deduct the amount of your donation.


What happens to my jemms if I resign or am terminated by my company?

If you resign or are terminated, your existing Jemmworks account will be disabled and you will no longer be able to log in. However, the jemms you have accumulated up to that date will not be lost. The balance of jemms in your account will be automatically transferred to a new, personal Jemmworks account (not affiliated with your former employer). You will be able to access your personal Jemmworks account, and spend your remaining jemms, for a period of up to 6 months. After 6 months, your personal account will be shut down, and any jemms still remaining in your account will be forfeited.
