When and how do I update my plan's definition of earnings?

As a benefits administrator, you can update your plan's definition of earnings in Zenefits at renewal when setting up your life and disability plans. The current options are:

  • base wage
  • base wage plus bonus
  • base wage plus commission
  • base wage plus bonus and commission

If you’re outside of a renewal period, you can reach out to Zenefits directly to update your plan’s definition of earnings. The definition of earnings update will apply to new enrollments only; if previous enrollments need to be corrected, Zenefits can handle that too.
