The benefit plans for your company will al be listed in the Plans page. This includes eligibility, rates, contributions, enrollment forms, and any supporting documentation. You can click on the plan under the Name heading to see eligibility, rate and employee contribution details. To view closed plans from previous plan years change the STATUS filter from Open to Closed. If you have questions or concerns about how the plans are built, please refer to your Broker Account Manager for more information.
A number of plan management tasks can be performed on the Benefits page:
Enrollment Progress tracks the progress of employee election statuses in the EaseCentral system. In Progress means employees have started to enroll, but did not complete all elections or sign forms. An employee with a Finished status means they signed their application. Use the Status counter for an overview or click on Actions > Generate Report for individual details. Progress details will only display employees that are eligible for a benefit in EaseCentral.
Reset Progress will default the progress back to Not Started for all employees. This should be done prior to each open enrollment in order to get an accurate progress report starting from the open enrollment start date once open enrollment starts. When progress is reset the most recent reset details are available on the Progress dashboard.
Custom messages can be emailed to employees in various stages of enrollment, e.g., Not Started, In Progress, Finished, or any combination of the three. Messages can be filtered by any of the Organization types added for the company if the Company Administrator would only like messages to be sent to specific groups of employees, or separate messages to be sent to each. Messages will only be sent to employees eligible for at least one benefit.

The Compensation Statements option will allow employers to communicate the value of benefits and employer contributions to an employee’s overall employment offering.
