  • Client (if applicable)
  • SSN
  • Employee ID
  • Name.

Employee Search Options

Record Filter - Status

Use the Status drop-down to select the desired member status (i.e. Full Time, Retirees, Cobra). Select 'All' if you do not wish to include status in the search criteria.

Record Filter - Member

Use the Member drop-down to select the desired member type, Employee, Dependent, or All. 

Record Filter – Client

The Entity search field will only appear on the Find Employee Search Bar if multiple entities exist.

If you have multiple entities, use the Client drop-down to select the desired entity.

Record Search - SSN

Provide the employee's Social Security Number within the SSN field without spaces or dashes.

The employee's information will appear in a list below the search bar.

If only a portion of the Social Security Number is typed, all records matching that portion will appear in the list.

Click anywhere on the employee's information within the search results to view the record.

Record Search - Employee ID

Provide the employee's Employee Identification Number within the Employee ID field.

The employee's information will appear in a list below the search bar.

All records that have an Employee ID that begins with the provided value will appear in the list.

Click anywhere on the employee's information within the search results to view the record.

Record Search – Name

Enter the member's last name within the Name field.

The employee's information will appear in a list below the search bar.

If only a portion of the Last Name is typed, all records matching that portion will appear in the list. All records with the last name typed will appear in the list.

To narrow the search further, enter a comma and a space and then enter the employee's first name (ie. "Smith, John").

Click anywhere on the employee's information within the search results to view the record.

Each entry displayed within the list will show the current status of the employee. If a termination date has been filled out for an employee AND that date has already occurred, the employee's status will show as "Terminated Employee". Other possible statuses include: "Terminated Cobra", "Terminated Retiree", "Active", "Retiree", "Cobra", and "Deceased". The current status for each employee will be determined by what is entered in the Employee Information section.
