When you add a new employee to your system via SimplyInsured, we will suggest the insurance start date based on the employee's hire date and your company's insurance waiting period.
You can add the employee with that suggested start date, or you can make changes for special circumstances. To adjust the effective date for the employee, follow these steps:
1) Add a new employee following these directions:

2) On the "Confirm Add New Employee" page you can click the "Change" link next to "First Day of Coverage" to adjust the insurance start date. Once updated, our system will take care of the rest.
Your employee will also receive an email notification confirming their start date.
