  4. Benefits Enrollment: Eligible Employees will have 30 days from their benefits effective date of 1/1/23 to elect new benefits coverage under TriNet. Benefits coverage and rates are retroactive to the benefits effective date. Electing benefits earlier in the enrollment window will help prevent employees from having deductions for more than one pay period taken from a single paycheck. Employees have the ability to connect with our Health Advocates team for assistance in choosing benefits, but are not able to advise which plan to choose. I’ve attached a flyer you can provide to your employees.
