When can my employees begin using our eBenefits Website?

Answer: The first day the site is completed.


 

Are my policies and data protected?

Answer: Yes, eBenefits Websites uses the most current web security available. We update our security platform daily and as new protection code is developed, we update our system the day it's released. All employer data is kept under secure encryption using "strong password" protection.  Employers may choose their own log in ID and password. We offer password encryption from 1 going up to 21 characters.  eBenefits Websites allow clients to include any characters available in consideration of a "strong password" offering clients the opportunity to choose the most security possible in password protection.  Most clients chose a simple password, to make it easy for employees to remember (a four digit number or name for example), we simply offer the client the ability to use a "strong password" if they so choose.  A strong password is a password that meets the following guidelines: (eBenefits Websites offers a free random password generator from 1-21 keys to our clients)
