An online benefits enrollment system allows employees to make benefit selections via a website. The system submits the selections to the company that provides the benefits for processing.
Online benefits enrollment saves the human resources department time by having employees manage their own benefits. Employees have time to consider all of the benefit options and make selections on their own time. An online benefit enrollment system allows current employees to review their selections from previous years and make changes as necessary during the open enrollment period. Employees can also make changes to benefits when qualifying life events such as marriage or the birth of a child occur.
