EaseCentral Updates: EaseCentral Changes Email Notifications, Voluntary Life, and Broker Marketing Materials

EaseCentral Changes Email Notifications

Agency employees and Company Administrators did not receive the changes email notification on 3/12/17, 3/13/17, or 3/14/17 due to an internal daylight savings time error. This has been corrected. The email alert identifying changes made between 3/14/2017 - 3/15/2017 was sent yesterday along with a separate email alert identifying changes entered into EaseCentral between 3/11/2017 - 3/14/2017 to ensure all changes are accounted for and communicated. 

Voluntary Life

EaseCentral now includes the option to apply a Child Life rate to each child in the Benefits > Rates page. When the Per Child Rate option is selected, the benefit amount selected in EaseCentral will be multiplied by the rate and then multiplied by each child entered in the employee’s profile.

The Per Child Rate option will be deselected as a default, since most Voluntary Life plans apply the rate to the benefit amount only, and don’t additionally calculate the rate per child.

Additionally, if the carrier charges a different rate based on the child’s age, we added a Table Columns option in the Table Rate Type for Employee & Spouse & Child Rates which allows rates to be individually added by age for children as well as for employees and spouses.

Broker Marketing Materials

Two new co-branded employer brochures are available in brokers' EaseCentral Marketing Center. Brokers can log in to their EaseCentral account and generate onboarding and HRIS brochures for their groups with their logo.
