New Hire Checklist

The following checklist will get you started with your benefits enrollment. A more detailed enrollment guide can be found at this link: How to Enroll.

  • Know who’s eligible: Find out who you can cover under your Michaels benefits. Most plans provide coverage for eligible dependents; if you need to cover family members, you can determine who is eligible. Remember, your spouse or domestic partner cannot be covered by a Michaels medical plan if full-time medical coverage is available through his/her employer.
  • Compare the options: Let eValuate help you choose the right coverage for you and your family.
  • Add up FSA savings: You may want to take advantage of the tax-savings of one or more Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs).
  • Consider life Insurance and name your beneficiaries: Figure out how much life insurance coverage you need to protect yourself and those you love. Your beneficiaries are managed in Workday, and you can change your designation at any time.
