If a US Global Payroll direct employee has a qualifying life event (QLE), this will make them eligible to update their benefit elections. However, the employee must notify their employer first that they’ve had a QLE.
This article shows how a US direct employee can submit a QLE request to their employer, where available:
✅ Step 1 - Select Special Enrollment Period Requests
Click on the Benefits tab on your Homepage and select Special Enrollment Period Requests.
✅ Step 2 - Fill in the Qualifying Life Event details
Select the type of event, date of the event, and upload any supporting documents.
You will receive an email when your request is either approved or rejected, and you will see a notification on the Deel platform. If your request is rejected, you will receive a notification with the reason for rejection.
✅ Step 3 - Choose your benefits
If your request is approved, you may now make your benefit selections accordingly.
