Voluntary Insurance (EBi)

Employees have two available resources for making voluntary benefit changes:

1. Schedule an appointment with EBi

2. Use the online self-service enrollment portal

Employees who choose to schedule an appointment with an EBi benefit consultant may do so via phone or video conference. Appointments are available per LPSS location based on the below schedule. The Wednesday prior to your scheduled week, LPSS Insurance will send a reminder email to each scheduled location. The scheduling tool within the email will allow the employee to select a specific date and time for an appointment with an EBi consultant. Time slots are available in 20-minute increments. After the appointment is scheduled, the employee will receive an email confirmation and a future reminder text.

Employees who chose to use the online self-service enrollment portal can reference the easy to follow user guide below. A real time chat option is also available should something be unclear during the enrollment process.
