Processing the Self Service Pending WED Report in HRS


This report will identify any newly hired or open enrollment employees who have accessed and/or made elections using Self Service but have not confirmed the elections. Benefit Administrators need to contact these employees to ensure benefit elections are submitted to HRS timely.

Process considerations:

  • If the employee does not complete the enrollments by clicking the Submit button, they will not be enrolled for insurance and potentially may miss their new hire 30 day or open enrollment window to make elections
  • Benefit Administrators should only enter elections through an ADM event if the employee has submitted paper applications.  See Enrolling, Changing, or Canceling Coverage Using On Demand Event Maintenance in HRS

2.  The list of employees who went into Self Service, but have not submitted their elections will appear.  If you have run the Running the Employee Process Status Report in HRS in the past, this would represent any Event currently in a status of "Notified."

4.  Contact the employee to remind them that they have a limited amount of time to enroll and they need to go back into Self Service and submit their elections

5.  Check the Completed By box. Your name will appear in the Completed By section.  Once the Employee has successfully submitted their enrollments or missed their enrollment opportunity, the Employee will fall off the list the following business day.
