Assigning deduction codes and descriptions

Benefits information lives in two places: in Zenefits and in payroll. By assigning codes in Zenefits to the benefits you offer your employees, you can ensure the link between employee benefit information in Zenefits and in payroll.

For example, let’s say your company offers a medical insurance plan and a dental plan. If they were labeled with codes of “Deduction 1” and “Deduction 2,” Zenefits won't know which deduction code corresponds to your employees' dental and medical plans in Zenefits, and won't be able to automatically push deductions to payroll. In this case, the codes should be changed to names that clearly identify the type of benefits they apply to, e.g., "Medical" and "Dental".
