How exciting! We have done our best to layout below the most need-to-know benefit information below so you don't have to stress and can start enjoying your work right away.

Review benefits

Explore this site or our benefit guide to learn more about what each benefit covers as well as the associated costs. You will also want to review our eligibility policies so you're aware of who you're able to cover. For help making these important choices review our "Choosing My Benefits" page.

If you have questions please check out the New Hire FAQ at the bottom of this page.

Enroll in benefits

You have 31 days from the time you're in our system (typically by your second day of employment) to enroll in our benefits.

To complete the Benefits Enrollment process: 1. Log in to UKG and navigate to Menu > Myself > Benefits > Manage My Benefits. 2. Complete all your benefit elections. 3. Select Review and Checkout to review your benefit elections for accuracy. 4. Select Checkout to complete the Benefits Enrollment process.

As a reminder, remember to select Checkout on the Review page to complete the Benefits Enrollment process. Benefit elections or changes are not active until you select Checkout to complete your new elections.

If you have any questions about your benefits or the enrollment process, contact the  LiveWellteam at livewell@mcclatchy.com.

Verify your personal information

Verify your personal information in the UKG Employee Portal, such as address, emergency contact, and federal tax withholdings under the Myself tab.

All your benefit information, such as ID cards, will be mailed to your address on file, so triple-check that it's correct.

Submit Evidence of Insurability (EOI)

Upon initial eligibility, new hires (or any newly eligible employees/spouses) may elect up to $250,000 in employee supplemental life insurance and up to $50,000 in spouse or domestic partner supplemental life insurance without providing EOI.

If you elect more than the above amounts you will need to submit EOI documents directly to The Hartford. You will receive a packet in the mail regarding the EOI process 2 weeks after enrollment. More about the EOI verification process can be found here.

Start contributing to our 401(k)

Generally, after 6 months of employment and 375 hours of service, you'll be able to start contributing to our 401(k).

Enroll online at www.vanguard.com or by phone at (800)523-1188 (Plan #098630).
