Benefits Connect and the Employer Agreement

Benefits Connect guides you through the process to submit your Employer Agreement. Beginning with determining who will be eligible for coverage, as you walk through the process, you will decide the benefits to offer, employer costs, and employee contributions. At the end of the process, the online Employer Agreement you submit to the Board will document these decisions. Benefits available for employees to elect during annual enrollment in the fall will be based on your selections in the Employer Agreement.
