MyChoice is a feature that enables your employees to use their employee benefits more flexibly. MyChoice allows the employees to transfer balance between Edenred Virike and Edenred Transport and to decide for themselves whether to use the benefits for sports and culture or transportation.

Transfers take place in real-time and can be done 5 times in 30 days. MyChoice takes into account the maximum annual values of employee benefits determined by the Tax Administration and does not allow the balance to be transferred beyond those values.
