The system is designed to budget for benefits that start after the new employee's hire date. In our example, John Smith will begin work on January 1 and per policy his health benefits will start three months later on April 1 while his parking benefit will start two months after his start date, March 1.

2) When setting up the Payroll Expense Definitions for the benefit for which the employee is eligible after their start date select from the drop-down menu select the appropriate "Eligible Date Field". There are two options. Therefore different benefits can start on one or the other eligible date. In the example, the "Medical" will start on "EligibleDate1" and the "Parking" on "EligibleDate2".
