7.06.01: Determining a member's benefit plan

Before reporting a new employee for the first time, always search for the employee in the Member Benefits Plan link to determine the employee's benefit plan. Minimize the risk of starting a second account for this new employee by making sure you have an accurate Social Security number on file. 

  1. From the Employer Home Page, click Member Benefit Plans on the Things To Do menu. 


     
  2. Enter the social security number(s) of the employee(s) and click OK.

The Member Information Display screen will show the benefit plan and healthcare option along with the contribution rates for the social security number entered. See the examples below.
