All the information you’ll need will be on this page, and on the left-hand column. Bookmark this page and refer back to it often as you familiarize yourself with your Publicis benefits.

When You’ll Receive Benefits

You have 45 calendar days from your hire date to enroll in your benefits. Your coverage effective date is based on your hire date or (for existing Groupe employees) when your employment status changes to benefits-eligible. If you are hired or become eligible for benefits on the first of a month, your coverage will be effective on the first of that month. Otherwise coverage will fall on the following month. For example: If you were hired on October 1, you would receive benefits effective October 1. If you were hired on October 2, you would receive benefits effective November 1.

Note: If you need to use insurance before your enrollment is active in the insurance benefit administrator’s system, you may pay out-of-pocket and submit a paper claim to the insurance benefit administrator. Or, you may present the enrollment confirmation page to your provider, and ask the provider’s office to hold off on sending claims to the insurance benefit administrator until you can confirm you are actively enrolled. You can find claim forms on the Guides/Forms page.
