Running the Populate Eligibility Config Pop Process Ad Hoc in HRS


The Populate Eligibility Configuration Process (Elig Config Pop) translates information entered in Job Data and on the UW Benefits Tab to values on the Benefits Program Participation Page. These values are then read by Benefits Administration (or Ben Admin) which assigns the employee to the appropriate Benefit Program based on these values.

Process Considerations:

  • This process will run automatically every Sunday through Thursday night and evaluate employees who had a JOB row entered since the last time the process ran.
  • Benefit Administrators can run this process ad hoc for a specific employee based on proximity to a payroll.
  • Benefits Administration (via On Demand Event Maintenance) must be run after this process to ensure the employee is assigned to the appropriate Benefit Program.

Warning!  Coverage may not be canceled nor premiums increased retroactively unless done after consultation with UWSHR and with advance notice to the employee. Employees with special circumstances such as military leave, Family Medical Leave (FMLA or WFMLA), and/or leave under Worker's Compensation require consultation with UWSHR.

In the example below, the employee has voluntarily decreased their FTE permanently effective 6/26/2016.  This will result in the employee moving from paying the Employee Share for State Group Health Insurance to the Less Than Half Time Rate.  A payroll is due to finalize today and you want to ensure the employee is charged (prospectively first coverage month following reasonable notice to the employee*) the appropriate deductions for health insurance.  In this case, you will want to run the Populate Eligibility Config Pop Process followed by Benefits Administration using On Demand Event Maintenance to push the changes through before payroll finalizes.

6. The Process Monitor page will display with a Run Status of Processing and Distribution Status of N/A. You can click the Refresh button to move the process to the next stage or come back at a later time to view the status. If the process has a Run Status of "Blocked" or "Queued" it means your process is waiting for another process to finalize before it can run. Do not submit again as the process will run after the process blocking it has completed. When the process has finalized, the Run Status will be Completed and the Distribution Status will be equal to Posted.

Success and Posted

7.  Navigate to Workforce Administration >  Job Information > Job Data, enter the employee's ID number and Search.  Then click the Benefits Program Participation link shown below.

8.  Note that values have changed in the Benefits Program Participation fields.  In this case, the value of "P" has been populated in Field 2 to indicate that the value has been changed from Full Employer Share to the Less Than Half Time rate. Values were read by the Benefits Administration (Ben Admin) Process and the employee was assigned to the appropriate Benefit Program effective 6/26/2016.  (To run Benefits Administration using On Demand Event Maintenance, please refer to: Enrolling, Changing, or Canceling Coverage Using On Demand Event Maintenance in HRS .)
