BN - WED - ABBR Unrounded Report


Income Continuation Insurance (ICI) and State Group Life Insurance (SGL) requires an Annual Benefit Base Rate (ABBR) for the payroll process to accurately calculate the insurance premiums to charge each payroll. The unrounded ABBR may cause insurance premiums to calculate incorrectly according to the rules for ICI and SGL. Benefit Administrators need to review the employee's job and compensation data and update or correct an ABBR accordingly. This KB document provides the steps required to add an Annual Benefit Base Rate for Income Continuation Insurance and State Group Life based on the WED - ABBR Unrounded Report.

6.  The employee's Update ABBR page will be displayed.  Click on the magnifying glass icon to select the ABBR type of ICI or SGL and identify which ABBR and Effective Date has a value that has not been rounded up to the next thousand.  (Note:  You will need to click on the Correct History button to correct an existing ABBR.)  In our example, the employee has a SGL ABBR effective 8/12/2011 that is not rounded up to the next highest thousand.

7.  Enter the correct ABBR amount using an Effective Date equal to or prior to the Deduction Begin Date for their Income Continuation and/or State Group Life enrollment or use Correct History to fix an historic row.  Do not use commas or decimal points when entering an ABBR.  The system will add the decimal point upon saving the record.   Below is an example of how to enter an ABBR row.  When all information has been added, click the Save button to save the record.

9.2 Correct entry

8.  To verify that you now have an appropriately dated ICI or SGL ABBR entered into the system, navigate to Benefits > Employee/Dependent Information > Review ABBR's.
