If you manage your workers’ comp policy directly from your payroll service provider, you can sign in to your account there and make any updates to your employee classifications.
If you have a workers’ comp billing account with NEXT (formerly AP Intego), follow these steps to (re)classify employees:
1. Go to apintego.com and choose “Sign In” from the main navigation
2. Select “Workers’ comp billing” from the dropdown menu.
This will take you to the sign in screen for our billing portal
3. Sign in with the email associated with your account
Once you’re signed in you’ll be prompted to enter any missing class codes. Choose “Continue” and this will direct you to a list of all employees who are missing class codes.
Select the option ‘View Billing and Policy Info’ and then the tab ‘Employee Rates’. Under the ‘Action’ column, select the pencil icon for the employee for whom you’re entering or correcting the class code. You’ll see a dropdown with the class codes already listed on your policy next to ‘State-Class Code’. Select the best fitting class code and choose ‘Save’.
Note that the description of the class code may not be an exact description of the employee's job duties. Choose the one that is the closest fit, or, if in doubt, choose the one with the higher rate to make sure that you will be covered if you ever needed to make a claim for that employee.
If you have questions or concerns about classifying your employees, get in touch with NEXT customer support in the customer dashboard (same menu from our website home page) for help!
