BN - Half Time Compliance Report


University Staff Temporary, Academic Staff Hourly, and Academic Staff Lump Sum Employees covered by the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) who work less than full time need to be monitored by Campus Benefit Administrators to ensure they are paying the correct rates for health insurance. WRS covered employees who are working less than 50% and University Staff Temporary employees with one appointment are required to pay 50% of the total premium for State Group Health Insurance. Employees covered by the WRS who work more than 50% are entitled to receive the full employer share of the premiums. Employees who have a permanent FTE change above or below the 20 hour threshold on a permanent basis will need to have their Health Rate Field on the UW Benefits Tab on Job Data updated in order to drive the correct rates for State Group Health insurance. Campuses should periodically run the Half Time Compliance Audit Report to monitor their staff and make changes as needed. It is recommended that Campus Benefit Administrators consult with HR staff on their campuses to confirm intent prior to making any changes on Job Data.

13.  If/when the report indicates that an employee should be changed from the Full Employer Share to the Less Than Half Time Rate or vice versa, a Job Row must be added effective the first of the month following the pay period in which they have either met the hours threshold or dropped below that threshold provided the employee is given sufficient advanced notice.  (Payrolls that fall outside the first of the month through the last day of the month may need a payline adjustment and future retro will need to be monitored.)

14.  When the Job Row is entered to change the Health Rate Field, the employee will be moving to a new Benefit Program and consequently will appear on the MSC Event Evaluation Report.  For more information on this report, please reference the following KB document:  BN - MSC Event Evaluation Report .
