EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS
A cornerstone of ERIC membership is our email alerts and updates. You can receive as many as you like, on the subjects and at the frequency you choose.

Our most popular emails are the ERIC InSights -- issue-specific alerts drafted with late-breaking developments, insights into what policymakers are doing, why you should care, what you can do about it, and what ERIC is doing about it for you. 

You can customize your email subscriptions anytime to ensure you receive the communications that you need. To modify your email subscriptions through the ERIC website, visit My Profile, then click My Account, followed by My Subscriptions. Here are the ERIC email communication options:

The platform allows users to obtain information they need, such as reports, maps, or charts on specific employee benefits rules in various states and localities.   

ERIC’s staff is also available to walk you through the State Mandate Action Program™ and to create reports, charts and maps for you.

ERIC AS A RESOURCE FOR YOU AND YOUR COMPANY
ERIC operates as an extension of your team and can provide support through its staff and Advisory Council.

ERIC members enlist our expertise in a variety of ways. We are happy to brief you or your company colleagues on the latest policy developments at the federal or state level, survey other ERIC members on issues that are of interest to you, provide advice to you on how we can obtain relief for the compliance, and any other challenges facing your company, or otherwise support you and your company.

ERIC staff is a phone call or click away to provide the insights, information or support you need.
