How to Add Status Information to an Employee Record

Within the Employee Information screen, locate the Status Information section and click on one of the following buttons:

  • "Add New Active Status"
  • "Add New Retiree Status"
  • "Add New Cobra Status"

Add New Active Status

Click on the "Add New Active Status" button within the Status Information section to access the New Active Status form.

Enter the Hire Date. Click on the Calendar icon to access a mini-calendar for selecting a date or type in the desired date in MM/DD/YYYY format.

Enter the Job Start Date (this date can be the same as the Hire Date). Click on the Calendar icon to access a mini-calendar for selecting a date or type in the desired date in MM/DD/YYYY format.

Select Full Time or Part Time from the FTPT drop-down.

Provide the employee's annual salary within the Salary field.

All other fields within the New Active Status form are optional.

Click the Save icon.

An alert will confirm that the record has been saved.

The Job Salary field (and, later, the calendar and/or plan year salaries, if applicable) in this section should only be populated with the salary that will be used to calculate Life/Disability premiums. The premium calculations are based on plan year salaries, so the salary that should be used for the entire year to calculate premiums should be entered in this section. The use of these fields is established during implementation.

Later, as applicable, the Calendar or Plan Year Salary fields should be populated to maintain the calculation of life/disability benefits that need to remain the same throughout the entire plan or calendar year.

Once the Status is saved, it will appear in a collapsed view.

To view more job details, click the arrow next to the Status and then again next to the Job Title to expand the box.

If employees are not required to enter new elections online, the Administrator can update the coverage elections manually. See the Coverage section for more information.

The "Show Removed" button at the bottom of the page will display any removed/deleted jobs when clicked.
