Your New Hire Benefits Checklist

Use the checklist below to make sure you review your benefit options, enroll in benefits, and begin saving for retirement with the company's 401(k) plan.

1. During your first two weeks: Review and explore your benefits.

Take some time to understand all the benefits that Nutanix offers, and decide which coverage is right for you and your family.

Explore this site for details about all benefits including medical, dental, and vision. Visit the Virtual Benefits Fair. To help you make your enrollment decisions, you can also use this Medical Plan Comparison Chart.


If you need personalized support at any time, call on MyAdvocate. They can help you compare your options, answer any questions you have, find plans that include your current doctors, give you ideas for how to save money in the coming year, and much more.

To get started, call MyAdvocate at 833-968-1775 or visit their website.

2. Within 30 days: Enroll in your benefits.

You have 30 days from your date of hire to enroll in your Nutanix health and insurance benefits.

Once enrolled, it will take up to five business days for your information to be captured in the various carrier systems. At that time, you can access your account online, print or save temporary cards, and access providers.

If you enroll in the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with HSA plan, your Health Savings Account (HSA) will be automatically set up on the first of the month following your hire date and enrollment. You will be required to then validate your account with HealthEquity to complete the setup. After your account is established, it will be funded by Nutanix. Delays in validating the account can delay funding.

What happens if you don’t enroll?

If you don’t enroll during this 30-day window, you will be automatically enrolled in the following benefits:

Your next opportunity to enroll in benefits will be during our annual Open Enrollment, typically held each year in the fall, unless you experience a qualifying life event during the year.

What if I enroll and later forget what I selected?

To see a summary of your benefits elections, log into Workday:

  • Select the Benefits icon from the drop-down menu.
  • View > Benefit Elections.

3. Within 60 days: Save for the future.

Be sure to determine how much you want to contribute to the Nutanix 401(k) Plan through payroll deductions. You’re immediately eligible to participate in the plan. After your first paycheck, visit the Fidelity website to make your contribution elections. Your contributions will take one to two pay periods to show up in your paycheck. If you don’t select a contribution rate within your first 45 days of eligibility (typically your hire date), you’ll be automatically enrolled at a 2% pretax contribution rate. You may choose to change your contribution rate and investment elections at any time.

You can easily enroll in the Nutanix 401(k) Plan and manage your account online or by phone:

  • Visit the Fidelity website – Enroll online at your convenience, any time of day or night.
  • Call 800-835-5097 – Representatives are available to help you Monday through Friday, from 5 a.m.–5 p.m. PT
Important reminder!

Make sure to provide beneficiary information for your Nutanix 401(k) Plan account. Log in to your account on the Fidelity website. Then navigate to “Accounts & Benefits” and click “Update” to review your beneficiaries and make updates.

Ready to Enroll?

Log in to Workday, and follow the enrollment instructions to make your 2023 benefit elections. Remember, full-time employees who don’t enroll in medical coverage within 30 days of their hire date or when they first become eligible will automatically be enrolled in certain benefits through 2023.

Opt-Out Credit

You’re able to opt out of medical coverage if you have other minimum essential coverage. When you opt out, you will receive a $200 per month credit ($92.30 biweekly). Nutanix follows the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) notice on how opt-out credits impact the affordability of employer-sponsored health coverage.

Minimum essential coverage is generally other employer-sponsored group medical plan coverage. By opting out of medical coverage provided by Nutanix, you’re required to provide proof of your enrollment in other minimum essential coverage. During the enrollment process, you will be required to attach documentation of your coverage, which includes your name, coverage period start date, and active status. Typically, this documentation can be found on your insurance provider website under view/print member ID.

Please note:

  • Basic Life Insurance: Coverage of 3X your annual base salary, up to $1 million.
  • If you cannot provide reasonable evidence that you are enrolled in minimum essential coverage, you must enroll in a Nutanix medical plan. (Keep in mind this coverage is provided at no cost to you.)

Once reviewed and approved, you will receive your opt-out credits on a go-forward basis each paycheck. This credit does not apply when opting out of dental or vision coverage.
