Basics of using eBenefits
In order to take full advantage of eBenefits, you may need to change your browser settings. For example, if nothing happens when you click on a provider link, this means you have a pop-up blocker that prohibits access to a third-party site. To change pop-up blocker settings review the text below.
Certain newer Web browsers (such as Netscape 7.0 or later, Safari 1.0 or later for Mac OS X, Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, and Firefox 1.5 or later) include a feature called pop-up blocking. This reduces the number of windows that open when browsing Web sites. If you have pop-up blocking enabled, and you experience oddities interacting with a Web page, disable the pop-up blocker and reload the page.
To view provider links on eBenefits you need to do one of two things:
- Reduce the filter level on your pop-up blocker from High to Medium on your Web browser or third-party program (i.e., Ad-aware).
- Each Web browser or third-party program has different ways to reduce the level of pop-up blocking security. Please consult the browser or program Help page for instructions on how to reduce the filter level.

- Disable the pop-up blocker on your Web browser.
