After you have created employee benefit offerings, you can offer them to your employees. To do this you, must create class codes for each employee benefit offering. Class codes allow you to assign different benefit offerings to groups of employees.

After you create class codes, you can open the benefits up to all employees to enroll. You might open an enrollment period at the end of the year (for example, November 15 - December 15) for the following year (January 1).

For new employees or employees with qualifying life events (such as birth, adoption, or death), you can offer benefits outside of an open enrollment period.
