This chapter contains the following topics:
If any of your benefit plans are changing rates during the open enrollment period, you can cross-reference the current year's DBAs (deductions, benefits, and accruals) with the current rates to the DBAs that reference the new rates. This cross-reference lets you effectively change the rates that appear for the enrollment period without changing the rates for the current DBAs.
You need to cross-reference DBAs only for benefit calculations that are table based or if the DBA is changing radically (for example, from a flat dollar amount to a percentage). If you do not set up a cross-reference, the system retrieves new rates from the Plan Master Rates table (F083203). If you set up both the Plan Master Rates table and the DBA cross-reference, the system uses the DBA cross-reference.
You need to set up the DBA cross-reference before you build the workfiles for open enrollment.
Set up the DBAs for the new rates.
This section discusses how to implement new DBA plan rates.
|Plan DBA/Enrollment DBA Cross Reference||W08515A||Self Service Setup (G05BESS4), Current to Future DBA X-Ref||Change your enrollment plan's DBA amounts to the new rates prior to the period in which they will be effective.|
Access the Plan DBA/Enrollment DBA Cross Reference form.
To cross-reference new DBA plan rates:
On Plan DBA/Enrollment DBA Cross Reference, enter the current year's DBA in the Plan / Option PDBA Code field.
Plan / Option PDBA Code
Enter a code that defines the type of pay, deduction, benefit, or accrual.
Pay types are numbered from 1 to 999. Deductions and benefits are numbered from 1000 to 9999.
Enter the corresponding DBA for the new rate in the Enrollment PDBA Code field.
Enrollment PDBA Code
Enter a code that is associated with a deduction, benefit, or accrual (DBA) that was used to calculate the employee's net payment. This code prints on the right side of the payment stub.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all the rates that are changing, and then click OK to save your changes.
