How can we help?

Enroll in benefits

When it's time to enroll in benefits, we'll send an email to let eligible employees know—whether you're a new hire or it's Open Enrollment. The benefits you choose for the year are permanent unless you have a qualifying life event, so choose carefully. 

There are four main steps to you'll need to complete to enroll in benefits. Follow these instructions to guide you through the process.

Sign into your Gusto account and go to the Benefits section. If you're an admin, toggle to your employee account by clicking the arrow beside your name in the top right corner and click Switch to employee profile. 

Step 1. Who’s Covered

  1. If you don’t have any dependents, click Save & Continue to bypass this step. If you do, click +Add dependent.
  2. Enter their information and click Save when you're done:
    • Relationship
    • Full Name
    • Birth Date
    • Gender
    • Social Security Number
  3. Click Save & Continue.

Step 2. Choose Benefits

Each benefit offered to you will appear on this step. When you click Enroll or Waive on the right side of each benefit, you’ll be presented with your plan options. There are a couple steps within each benefit type to complete before you finish choosing benefits:

  1. Verify the family members you’d like to include. Click edit if you need to make changes.
  2. When you’ve made your choice, click Select. If you’d like to opt out of your company’s benefits this year, click Waive, then click Save & Continue.
  3. Review your cost summary. We’ll give you the total cost, your company’s contribution to that total, and the per paycheck cost to you. When you’re ready to move forward, click Save & Continue.  

Step 3. Extra Information

We need to collect a few more pieces of information so we can automatically prepare your enrollment forms to send directly to the health insurance carrier(s). When you've finished answering these questions, click Save & Continue.

Step 4. Sign Forms

Sign each enrollment form or waiver on the last step, then click Confirm Enrollment.
