2.  In the Assign to Benefit Program search screen:
a.  In the Empl ID field, enter the employee's unique 8-digit employee ID, if known. (e.g. 99999999)  This is the best practice since more than one employee may have the same or similar names.
b.  Or in the Name field, enter all or part of the employee's first and last name, if known. (e.g. ABRAHAM LINCOLN)
c.  Select Include History so that a checkmark displays.  This allows you to view all future, current, and historical information for the employee.

3.  If the search criteria you entered in Step 2 returns multiple records, this will display in the Search Results area.  Otherwise the Benefit Program Participation page will automatically display for this employee and you can skip to Step 4.
a.  In the Search Results area, click on any column heading (e.g. Last Name) to sort in ascending or descending order.
b.  Locate the desired Benefit Program record you wish to review, and click on it to select.
4.  An example of the Benefit Program Participation page is displayed below.
a.  Effective Date = The first date the employee was assigned to that Benefit Program.
