New benefits portal and childcare voucher provider

Date: 22 December 2017

Staff benefits are being brought together in one online portal. Look out for your email in January explaining how to confirm your preferences and what you need to do if you use childcare vouchers.

The new Mylifestyle portal will enable colleagues to manage monthly contributions to a range of schemes including:

-           Cycle to work

-           Childcare vouchers

-           Payroll giving

-           Employee discounts - NEW 

Everyone will receive an email on 4 January with details of the new portal. You should should log in to your new account by 25 January to check your details are correct and that you are registered for the schemes you are interested in. 

If you use childcare vouchers 

The changes are part of the transfer to new childcare voucher provider Edenred. 

Users of the childcare voucher scheme (currently with Fideliti) will have their details transferred automatically and vouchers received in December will carry over from Fideliti to Edenred.  You should log in to the Mylifestyle portal in January to check  your details and make any changes to the deduction amounts which will then become effective in your February salary deduction. 

You will also need to check with your care provider that they are registered with Edenred so they can receive payment. 

In February, you will receive an email from Edenred giving you access to the childcare vouchers portal childcarevouchers.co.uk so that you can allocate vouchers. 

Don’t worry if you have existing vouchers with Fideliti, you can continue to log in to their portal to pay a provider and the vouchers will remain active until your youngest child’s 15th birthday. 


Timeline for all colleagues:
 

4 January: All colleagues will receive an email from Edenred with Mylifestyle account details.

4-25 January: Log in to your Mylifestyle account to check your details and that you are registered for your preferred schemes. 

By 14 February: Childcare voucher users should check their providers are registered with Edenred. 

1- 14 February: Childcare voucher users will receive an email with details of the childcarevouchers.co.uk portal.
 

If you have any queries about the transition, please contact HR Direct or see People First.
