Benefits Medical Information - Copy and Update Record
Use this procedure to copy an existing Benefits Medical Information (0376) infotype record and update it with necessary changes. Copying and updating a record is only necessary when the employee’s attestation information has been entered into Pay1 on payroll processing Day 3. Using the Copy action will retain the history of the previous record.
All updates to an employee’s benefit information should be entered in Pay1. This procedure should only be used if an employee’s attestation information in Pay1 has been updated on Day 3 of payroll processing and the information will not have the necessary time to GAP into HRMS.
For information regarding employee attestation requirements for PEBB benefits, contact Health Care Authority PEBB Program toll free at 1-800-200-1004.
Newly eligible employees, employees regaining eligibility, returning from waived status, or enrolling/changing a spouse or dependent in PEBB medical (age 13 or older) must attest on the PEBB Premium Surcharge Attestation Form.
Be sure to communicate with your payroll processor before entering retroactive changes to an employee's record.
