How to enroll

With so many great benefits at your fingertips, you’re probably excited to start using them, huh? Just watch for an email from Workday. It’ll contain all the details you need to enroll in most of your benefits.

Where to go

Most benefits: You’ll go to Workday to enroll in medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, the Health Savings Account, life, AD&D, disability, and legal coverage. Refer to the New Hire Enrollment article on Autodesk One for step-by-step instructions.

401(k) plan: As a new employee, you’ll be enrolled automatically in the 401(k) plan at a 6% pretax contribution rate. You can change your contributions and investments on the Vanguard site.

Commuter benefits: Go to the Commuter Check Direct website (use company code 1121) to set up your account and select how much you want to set aside from your paycheck.

Home, auto, and pet insurance: You can apply for discounted insurance anytime by visiting Farmers GroupSelect (for home and auto insurance) and Nationwide (for pet insurance).

Have your SSN handy

You’ll need your Social Security number (SSN) to enroll in Autodesk benefits through Workday. If you’ve recently obtained your SSN for the first time, contact AskPPL via Autodesk One to request that it be entered into Workday. You can then enroll in benefits the following week.

Need care before you have your SSN? You’ll need to pay up front for any services you receive prior to being enrolled in medical coverage. You can then submit a claim to your insurance plan for reimbursement. If you or a family member experiences a medical emergency and is in the hospital, the medical insurance plan that you choose will allow us to manually enroll you in their system. Contact AskPPL via Autodesk One to get the process started.

When coverage begins

Regardless of when you enroll in benefits during your first 31 days, coverage and premium contributions for benefits you elect are retroactive to your hire date.

It typically takes about a week from when you make your selections for the insurance carriers to load your information into their systems. In the meantime, you may need to pay for covered services and submit a claim for reimbursement.
