NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FSA company, Clarity Benefit Solutions, explains how to help employees make informed benefit decisions during open enrollment.

Studies show that open enrollment can be a confusing time for employees. Many make decisions based on the deductions they can afford month-to-month while some are so overwhelmed they simply give up without making any changes. Therefore, it is essential to present the right mix of mandatory and voluntary benefits in a clear, consistent manner to ensure the plans are understood—and appreciated.

Start the process early by using multiple communication methods to spread the word. Use a combination of brochures, email, webinars, internet/intranet, social media, a benefits portal, multi-media presentations, mobile devices, apps, wearables, and posters. Hold a lunch meeting to give a brief overview of the open enrollment process as well as the benefit choices. It is especially important to communicate any changes that may have occurred with benefit packages. Have a benefit expert available to field questions immediately and encourage employees not to rush the process. Make sure they have the time they need to make informed decisions. Offering online access can also help employees share benefit information with their families, at their convenience.

During the open enrollment period, continue to share benefit options and encourage employees to choose the best package to suit their individual needs. Employees come from all walks of life, and an unmarried employee in his or her twenties will have different requirements than someone who is considering retirement. Create a personalized experience to boost enrollment numbers.

After the open enrollment period, keep delivering a consistent message to ensure complete employee comprehension. Share updates as well as interesting information about benefits that employees may not be aware of. This is especially important when it comes to voluntary benefits since they can be added at any time. It is vital to keep them engaged in their benefits the entire year, which will make the benefit selection process that much easier the following year.
