Benefits Connect guides you through the process to submit your Employer Agreement. You will decide who will be offered what benefits, when coverage will take effect, and how much you and employees will contribute to the cost of coverage. 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.
To review and/or update and submit your Employer Agreement, log on to Benefits Connect:
- Go to pensions.org; click Log On at the top of the screen next to the Benefits Connect logo (or go directly to pensions.org/benefitsconnect).
- On the homepage, choose Employer Agreement, then create a new model for [next year].
- Walk through the steps on the progress bar at the top of the screen to view and select the benefits you will include in your Employer Agreement. Every employer is different; not all employers will select each benefit for all, or any, benefit group.
When you review your benefits selections, confirm that they have been captured correctly and reflect your selections and contribution decisions.
Importance of employer profile
The employer representative maintains the Employer Profile on Benefits Connect, ensuring that contact information is accurate and up to date for himself/herself, the billing representative, and Retirement Savings Plan representative. Review and update all email and mailing addresses so that the Board may contact you promptly when needed.
