What you need to know

Thanks for joining our team as an intern! We can’t wait to see how you’ll contribute. In the meantime, check out the Workday benefits you’re eligible for. Coverage begins on your date of hire, but you need to enroll within 30 days.

Benefits you can enroll in

As a U.S. intern, you can enroll in medical, dental, and vision coverage for yourself and your eligible dependents. If you choose the Cigna Smart Plan or Kaiser Smart Plan for medical coverage, you can enroll in a Health Savings Account (HSA) with contributions from Workday.
You also may want to check out legal assistance through MetLife Legal Plans.

How to enroll

You have 30 days from your start date to enroll in benefits through a task in Workday.

You won’t see your benefits task in Workday on your first day; you’ll have to go through some of your onboarding tasks first, such as your I-9 verification. If you stay on top of your onboarding tasks, you should receive the benefits task by the end of your first week. Benefits enrollment comes after the Review Documents steps.

Ready to enroll?

When you’ve decided which plans you want, all that’s left is to sign up.


Need help?

Choosing a medical plan isn’t something to lose sleep over. But even if you’re up in the middle of the night making your decision, ALEX is here to help—24/7.

ALEX is a confidential, interactive tool available to Workday interns to help you choose the best benefits for your unique needs. At the end of your interaction, ALEX will suggest which Workday plans may be best for you.

Or, to learn how the medical plans work, you can go right to the source and talk to a Cigna One Guide or Kaiser representative. They'll answer your questions to help you choose a plan.

Benefits you get automatically

Just for being here and being you, Workday provides these benefits:

Be sure to complete the enrollment task in Workday, where you’ll name your beneficiary for life and AD&D insurance. Don’t forget to do this, even if you’re not enrolling in health care benefits.


This site is the best place to learn about Workday benefits. That’s why we named it Workdaybenefits.com (clever, eh?). So start your reading on these pages. Then, if you have questions, submit a People Guide request.

When your internship ends

That was fun, right? If you’re leaving us for now, your benefits will end on the last day of the month in which you leave. If you’re staying on as a regular Workmate (yay!), you’ll keep your benefits and become eligible for even more!
