BN - MSC Event Evaluation Report

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Various Job Data updates may result in changes to an employee's eligibility or costs for benefits. When this occurs, Benefit Administrators need to verify if the changes are accurate and counsel the employee to ensure the employee is aware of how the job data updates will affect their benefit enrollments, eligibility, or costs, as well as obtain any required enrollment forms within specified deadlines. These changes will appear on the MSC Event Evaluation Report.

PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS:
  • Enrollment in the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) plan will only occur once the MSC Event has been Finalized.  If the employee is a hire or rehire, the system will automatically process this Event to Finalized on your behalf.  However, employees currently employed in a Limited or Grad appointment who are becoming eligible for the WRS require the Benefit Administrator to process the Event manually and prior to their first payroll check to avoid missing any WRS deductions.
  • Because some messages only appearing once and then drop off the report, and there are deadlines for enrolling in Benefit Plans when newly eligible, the MSC Event Evaluation Report must be monitored every day by Benefits Administrators at the campus.
  • It's critical to monitor the Employee Process Status Report to ensure currently Open Events (such as an ADM, SAV, or other MSC Event) that may be preventing an Event from being picked up by the MSC Event Evaluation Report is processed timely.
  • Do not finalize the event if you believe the new eligibility is incorrect.  Please correct Job Data or open a WiscIT to the UW Service Center for assistance.
