Don’t miss your once-a-year opportunity to enroll in new benefits or make changes to existing benefits without a qualifying event. Employees can research benefits options, compare rates, and make benefits elections online through the Employee Portal on our website.

The simple online system walks you through the open enrollment process step-by-step. The video below provides instructions for getting logged in and completing your open enrollment elections and changes online and may answer many of your questions.

Who do I contact if I have difficulty accessing the portal?
If you are having difficultly accessing the open enrollment portal, please make sure the pop-up blocker in your internet browser is turned off as it opens in a new window.

If you have difficulty logging in or have questions about benefits options or the open enrollment process, please reach out to the Helpside Client Success Team. They can be reached Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm via phone at (801) 443-1090 or via live chat on our website at www.helpside.com or via email at service@helpside.com.

We encourage you to allow yourself plenty of time before the deadline in order to prevent issues logging in that may delay the ability to complete open enrollment changes and elections on time. The portal will not allow you to submit after 10:00pm (MST).
