LET'S START WITH YOUR COMPANY'S BASIC INFO.








 
We ask for this information for internal tracking purposes only. It will be held securely in our system and not distributed.

The Employer Identification Number, also called the Federal Identification Number (FIN) and Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN), is a unique identifier for each employer. This is different than a Social Security Number which is a highly sensitive personal number that should not be freely distributed. We will use this information only for tracking purposes within our systems.

 

Full-time employees are defined as anyone working more than 30 hours per week. This is a little different than many would expect. Most employers assume a full-time employee works 40 hours, but the regulations stipulate that an employee that works on average 30 hours or more per week is a full-time employee. For purposes of this calculation, do not include the business owner, partners, or owner’s family members.

We will use this information, combined with your answers around part-time employees and pay cycles, to help calculate your Full-time Equivalent staff (FTEs). Your FTEs is a critical number. It dictates which components of health care reform are applicable to your business.

Under certain scenarios, full-time employees, and their dependents, are the employees to whom you may have to offer coverage. The type of coverage, the time in which it is offered, and the type of coverage offered to dependents, all have to meet different criteria.

 

Part-time employees can include seasonal workers, per diem, or non-hourly employees. These employees are included as part-time employees if they work on average fewer than 30 hours of service per week.

We will use this information to calculate the estimated number of hours worked, in a year, by your part-time staff. The actual calculation is "Hours Worked by Part-time Staff = (part-time employees) X (average hours a part-time employee works per pay cycle) X (number of pay cycles per year)". This number combined with total Full-time employees allows us to calculate your Full-time Equivalent staff (FTEs). Your FTEs is a critical number. It dictates which components of health care reform are applicable to your business.

 

Pay cycles can also be thought of as how often you send out paychecks to employees. The options include Monthly (12 pay-checks per year), Bimonthly (24 paychecks per year - typically the 1st and the 15th), Biweekly (26 paychecks per year - typically every two weeks), and Weekly (52 paychecks per year).

We will use this information to calculate the estimated number of hours worked, in a year, by your part-time staff. The actual calculation is "Hours Worked by Part-time Staff = (part-time employees) X (average hours a part-time employee works per pay cycle) X (number of pay cycles per year)". This number combined with total Full-time employees allows us to calculate your Full-time Equivalent staff (FTEs). Your FTEs is a critical number. It dictates which components of health care reform are applicable to your business.

 

This is an average per part-time employee. It is not, the average for all part-time employees.

This number should be per the pay cycle you indicated above. If you put in monthly pay cycles than this should be the average hours a typical part-time employee works during a month.
