20 Reviewing History and Revising Self-Service Workfiles

This chapter contains the following topics:

20.1 Understanding Self-Service History and Workfiles

Employees can use the Work With Employee Self Service History program (P085585) to review changes to their company benefits. When an employee enters changes to benefits, either as the result of a qualifying life event or during open enrollment, the system tracks all changes and saves them in history files. An employee might use this program to review current benefits to see if they need to be updated or to check the records for errors.

A system administrator can use workfile maintenance programs to enter changes to the benefits self-service workfiles. Although entering changes directly to a workfile should be an unusual event, you can directly change the data in the workfiles to correct errors or enter changes that occur outside of normal parameters. You might use this approach for any of these tasks:

  • Review files for data errors

  • Correct errors

  • Enter changes to data outside of open enrollment

    Important:

    Access to this program should have the highest possible level of system security because when you revise self-service benefits information manually:

    The system does not validate data entry.

    Changes entered in this program can create unintentional detrimental effects in other programs.

    Data can be removed or changed that negatively affects payroll processing and employee benefits.

    Only an expert software user should enter changes to benefits self-service workfiles. The user should be aware of all of the benefits self-service tables and understand the interactions of the enhanced self-service software. No data integrity checking is performed by any of the maintenance programs. For example, if a system administrator changes an employee enrollment from family coverage to employee only, errors result unless associated dependent records for the family enrollment are also changed.

    A system administrator can remove data from the workfiles without replacing the data with valid values. For example, if an administrator mistakenly removes a benefit plan option, all employees enrolled in the benefit plan option are affected. The self-service workfiles might require rebuilding as the result of potential errors.

    If you find it necessary to enter manual changes to self-service benefits history tables, back up your history workfiles and contact Oracle for technical support.

20.2 Reviewing Employee Self-Service History

This section provides an overview of employee self-service history review and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for the Work With Employee Self Service History program.

  • Review employee self-service history.

20.2.1 Understanding Employee Self-Service History

The Work With Employee Self Service History program displays historical information in these categories:

  • Personal information

  • Telephone information

  • Emergency contact information

  • Dependent and beneficiary information

  • Benefit plan and benefit plan option information

The Work With Employee Self Service History program uses these tables:

  • Employee Personal Profile Information History (F054101)

  • Employee Emergency Contact History (F054111)

  • Employee Phone Number History (F054115)

  • Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee History (F085520)

  • ESS History Table Cross Reference (F085528)

If changes to benefit information are required, and the open enrollment period is open, you can enter changes until open enrollment closes. If the open enrollment period is closed, you should contact the human capital management administrator.

If changes to benefit information are entered as the result of a qualifying life event, and the allowed period of time for entering benefit changes has not expired, you can enter changes. If the allowed period of time for entering benefit changes has expired, you should contact the human capital management administrator.

1. Display Employer Cost column on Plan and Plan Option History Form.

Specify whether the system displays the Employer Cost column on the Plan and Plan Options History form.

2. Display text and buttons to resemble the Enrollment Statement.

Specify whether the system displays text and buttons for each of these enrollment statements. Values are:

C: Current Enrollment Statement (Default)

P: Pending Enrollment Statement

F: Final Enrollment Statement

20.3.3 Review History

Access the Employee Self-Service History Reference form.

To review employee self-service history:

  1. On Employee Self-Service History Reference, select an underlined reference number. Depending on the link that you select, one or more of these history forms appears:

    • Employee Personal Profile History

    • Emergency Contacts History

    • Dependent/Beneficiary History

    • Plan/Plan Option History

  2. To view the financial summary for benefit plan or benefit plan options, select the Plan/Plan Option History link, then select Next. The plan/plan option history form displays the same data that appears on the final benefits enrollment confirmation form during the open enrollment process. Depending on how the self-service benefits programs are set up, these items might not appear:

    • Flex cost column

    • Employer cost column

    • Cost per pay period row

    • Send Email to HR button

20.4 Revising the Current Coverage Workfile

This section provides an overview and discusses how to revise the Current Coverage Workfile.

20.4.1 Understanding the Current Coverage Workfile

An expert system administrator can use the Employee Enrollment Work File Revisions program (P085530W) to enter changes to data in the Employee Current/Pending Elections Work Table (F085530W) before the system saves the temporary information from this table in the live tables. For example, if data errors are discovered in current employee coverage information, the system administrator can change, remove, and add data to the workfile.

After you build the Employee Current/Pending Elections Work Table, this table provides a picture of all the current employee enrollment information. Because enrollment changes that employees enter do not affect this file, you can use this file as a reference point when working in the Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee program (P085520W).

The system administrator should be aware that many changes that are possible in this program might include interdependent considerations in other tables. All changes to data using the benefits maintenance programs must be entered and tracked manually. The system does not review, track, or implement related changes to this or other tables.

20.5 Revising the Available Plans Workfile

This section provides an overview and discusses how to revise the Available Plans Workfile.

20.5.1 Understanding the Available Plans Workfile

An expert system administrator can use the Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee program (P085520W) to enter changes to the data in the Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee Work Table (F085520W) before the system stores the temporary information from this table in the live tables.

After you build the Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee Work Table, this table provides a current picture of all the available benefit plans and benefit plan options from which an employee can choose. As employees enter changes, this file records the changes that are active for the upcoming benefit plan year.

A system administrator might enter changes to this table to correct data errors or to change information that is not accessible to an employee. For example, an employee is unable to update benefits choices during open enrollment and open enrollment is now closed. During open enrollment, the system automatically assigned the current benefit choices as the choices for the upcoming benefit year. The records in the Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee Work Table confirm that the employee is enrolled in a Preferred Provider Option benefit plan (PPO) for the upcoming benefit year. The employee wants to change medical coverage from a PPO plan to an HMO plan. The system administrator can use the Available Plans and Plan Options by Employee program to remove the employee enrollment in the PPO plan and record an enrollment in an HMO plan. The system administrator must be aware that if dependents are affected by the benefit plan change, all issues that might be related to the change must be manually addressed. The system does not review, track, or implement related changes to this or other tables.

20.6 Reviewing Dependent and Beneficiary Current Coverage Revisions

This section provides an overview and discusses how to review dependent and beneficiary current coverage revisions.

20.6.1 Understanding Dependent and Beneficiary Current Coverage Revisions Review

A Human Capital Management administrator can use the Current Dep/Ben X-Reference Work Table program (P085537W) to review current dependent and beneficiary information that is contained in the Current Dep/Ben X-Reference Work Table (F085537W). This table provides a picture of current dependent and beneficiary enrollment information that is updated each time that you build a new Employee Current/Pending Elections Work Table (F085530W).

If information in this table is incorrect, you should not enter corrections to this table. Because the system does not save information from this table in the live tables, any changes that you enter in this table are lost. An expert system administrator can use the Dependent/Beneficiary Coverage Revisions program (P085536W) to enter changes to the Dependent/Beneficiary X-Reference Work Table (F085536W). After you save changes to the workfile and then build new workfiles, your changes are included in the new Current Dep/Ben X-Reference Work Table.

20.7 Revising the Dependent and Beneficiary Updated Revisions Workfile

This section provides an overview and discusses how to revise the Dependent and Beneficiary Updated Revisions Workfile

20.7.1 Understanding the Dependent and Beneficiary Updated Revisions Workfile

An expert Human Capital Management administrator can use the Dependent/Beneficiary Coverage Revisions program (P085536W) to review updated dependent and beneficiary information that is contained in the Dependent/Beneficiary X-Reference Work Table (F085536W). This table displays updated dependent and beneficiary enrollment information that employees enter using self service. The system periodically saves this information to live tables.

A system administrator might enter changes to this table to correct data errors or to change information that is not accessible to an employee. For example, during open enrollment, an employee enters dependent or beneficiary information that contains errors. When the open enrollment period is over, errors might exist in the Dependent/Beneficiary X-Reference Work Table, but the workfile records have not been saved in the live tables. The system administrator can use the Dependent/Beneficiary Coverage Revisions program to correct the errors. The system administrator must be aware that if the new information contains errors, all issues that might be related to the change must be manually addressed. The system does not review, track, or implement related changes to this or other tables.

20.8 Revising the Personal Profile Workfile

This section provides an overview and discusses how to revise the Personal Profile Workfile.

20.8.1 Understanding Personal Profile Workfile Revisions

An expert Human Capital Management administrator can use the Employee Personal Profile Information Table Revision program (P054101W) to review updated dependent and beneficiary information that is contained in the Employee Personal Profile Information Work Table (F054101W). This table displays current employee, dependent, and beneficiary personal profile information that employees enter using self service. The system periodically saves this information to live tables.

A system administrator can enter changes to this table to correct data errors or to change information that is not accessible to an employee. For example, during open enrollment, an employee might enter personal profile information that contains errors. When open enrollment closes, a system administrator might need to enter corrections to the temporary workfile records before saving the new data in the live tables. The system administrator can use the Employee Personal Profile Information Table Revision program to correct the errors.

The system administrator must be aware that if the new information contains errors, all issues that might be related to the change must be manually addressed. This program allows changes to all data in the table except the fields that track the individuals entering changes and when changes are entered. The program even allows changes to data that is not entered by an employee. The system does not review, track, or implement related changes that might be required in other tables.
