How do I add deductions or contributions for benefits managed by Zenefits?

Deductions and contributions for benefits managed through Zenefits will automatically populate for W-2 employees in Zenefits Payroll. There's no need to add or edit these in payroll.

Automated Updates in Payroll

Changes made in Zenefits will be instantly and automatically reflected in payroll.

  • For example, when a new hire enrolls in the company's Medical coverage, deductions will automatically be added to Zenefits Payroll, and begin in the paycheck that comes after the effective date for coverage.
  • Any changes to benefits, e.g., contribution changes, will be reflected in the next payroll after the effective date for the change.
