A benefits administrator is someone, typically a human resources or personnel specialist, who manages the employee benefits programs for an employer. These programs include the insurance benefits offered through PEBA Insurance Benefits.
Not only do benefits administrators need to understand these insurance programs and how they operate, but they must also stay abreast of federal and state programs and regulations that affect employee benefits. Expertise in administering benefits is becoming more important as these programs account for a growing proportion of overall employee compensation and as they grow in number and complexity.
Familiarity with these benefits is top priority for a benefits administrator, particularly in light of the rising cost of healthcare and the increasing cost to the employer in providing these benefits.
A benefits administrator is designated for each employer that participates with PEBA Insurance Benefits. To locate a benefits administrator for a particular employer, click here.
