ClearBenefits System (for Administrators)


ClearBenefits is a stand-alone module that allows:

Gaining Access

In general, one user and one back-up can be given access to the ClearBenefits system per department or division.  Training is required to receive a login.  A login will provide you full access to PTA Management screens; read-only access is not available at this time.  Classes are offered on a quarterly basis or more frequently, if needed.  You can sign up though STARS.

If you would like to receive announcements on upcoming ClearBenefits training classes and monthly reminders, please email Shannon Monahan (smonahan at stanford dot edu) to be added to the ClearBenefits Administrators Mailman List.

While not directly handled through OPA, managing postdoc insurance also requires knowledge of how postdocs are paid.  It is strongly suggested that administrators be familiar with Stanford GFS entry and practices.  Training for GFS is also provided, and administrators can sign up through STARS.

For Current ClearBenefits Administrators

The ClearBenefits login page can be found at:  Your login is your full stanford email address.

NOTE: The ClearBenefits system uses pop-ups in order to provide a larger display to manage PTAs for your postdocs, so make sure you turn off your pop-up blocker for that specific website.
