Broker Contact Us

What is Broker Contact Us? 

It’s the ability for brokers to submit cases to Zenefits Customer Care directly from the Partner Dashboard and/or the group overview page in Zenefits. 

Why is this product feature important? 

As a broker, you do not need to re-route clients back to Zenefits Customer Care for matters outside of benefits, rather, you can create and submit a case to the Zenefits Customer Care team on behalf of the client. 

What is the difference between submitting a Broker question vs Admin question, in the Broker Contact Us flow? 

The "Admin question" option should be used when a Broker Partner needs Zenefits'  Customer Care team to reach out to clients on issues that the Broker Partner cannot assist with.  
  • Some common examples of this are Commuter benefit issues, HSA/FSA issues,  Zenefits Payroll issues.
The "Broker question" option should be used when a Broker Partner has issues specifically related to the Benefits Administration app.  Prior to submitting issues for "Broker questions" it is important to review your question with your internal broker teams to identify if it is something you can make changes too, without Zenefits' intervention.  
  • Some common examples of these types of questions are things like changing employee effective dates, opening an employee enrollment, processing of fulfillment tasks, and/or updating a group's waiting period.
