Job Description for Benefits Analyst

A benefits analyst works closely with members of particular benefit plans, such as insurance plans and pension plans. They interact with members either in person, through e-mail, or via the telephone, helping them understand current coverage and potential future needs. Most of their time is spent reading benefit coverages and putting together plans of action for members, including explaining the details to those beneficiaries. Most benefit packages are regulated by state and federal law; a benefits analyst must stay current on applicable law and compliance regulations, as well as be able to explain these laws as needed to beneficiaries. They may also be required to contribute to new plan ideas, maintain databases of existing plans, and monitor release of benefits. Developing ideas and relaying data sets, client information, and cost effectiveness to senior personnel is important as well. These professionals typically work full time in an office environment during business hours, although schedules may vary depending on the needs of the business.
