New Hire Benefits Enrollment

  • Pointing sign that says "Open Enrollment"


  • Welcome to your benefits online enrollment. A couple of important things to remember before you get started. Consider all of your options before making your elections. Once you make your election, you will only be able to make changes during Open Enrollment or if you have a Qualifying Event.

    If your first day of work is on or before the 15th of the month, you must complete your online enrollment by the 20th of your first month of active employment. If your first day of work is after the 15th of the month, you will need to complete your online enrollment by the 20th of the following month. An employee will usually be allowed to register and enroll following their New Hire Orientation. If you fail to complete your enrollment by the 20th, you will still have an opportunity to enroll during your 30 day new hire window, but your benefits effective date will be delayed a month. Employees that fail to complete a enrollment during their 30 day new hire enrollment window will not be allowed to enroll in any of the District's benefit plans until the next open enrollment.

    Create a NEW ACCOUNT at Employee Benefits Enrollment Portal and follow the prompts to complete your enrollment online.

    If you are adding your spouse and/or children to your benefits, dependent verification documentation (marriage license, birth certificate, etc.) is required. You may upload the documentation during your enrollment.

    Your enrollment session will “Pend” until the required documentation is submitted. Failure to submit the dependent documentation will result in your selections being changed to “Employee only” for that benefit selection.

    If you have any questions or trouble logging into the Benefitfocus online enrollment session, you can call the Escambia Benefits Service Center at 1-844-939-0601 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday - Friday.
