New employees can view and select their medical, dental,
life insurance and flexible spending account options, as
well as add their spouse and/or eligible dependents from
the online benefits enrollment site in FlashLine.

As part of its continuing effort to enhance employee “self-service” and to streamline the on-boarding process for newly hired employees, Kent State’s Division of Human Resources has launched its online benefits enrollment site. 

Now, new employees may view and select their medical, dental, life insurance and flexible spending account options, as well as add their spouse and/or eligible dependents. Employee contributions are also displayed for each available option. All newly hired employees must make their benefit elections within 30 days of hire in order to access the online system and avoid any delay in coverage. 

The system also includes multiple links to electronic forms, benefit summaries, insurance booklets and other information to assist the new employee in his or her decision-making. Once the employee has completed their enrollment elections, they may print a confirmation form for their personal records.

To access the online benefits enrollment site, newly hired employees will take the following steps:

  1. Sign into Flashline
  2. Select the "MyHR" tab
  3. Select Enroll in Benefits (under the Job Flash – New Hire Requirements section)

 Instructions for the New Hire Benefits Online Enrollment site can be downloaded here. For additional questions you may also contact the Benefits office at (330) 672-3107 or benefits@kent.edu.
