BENEFITS ELIGIBILITY TRACKING
Benefit of Position Control. Employment Status is tied to the position. Employment status is tied to Benefits Eligibility Status. Therefore, Position Reassignments impact the benefits eligibility date. This will automatically begin the waiting period for employees who go from ineligible to eligible. This eliminates HR from managing employment status changes, and eligibility dates.

Some clients have different eligibility rules for different classes as well as different waiting periods for benefits versus pension. Our system allows clients to create custom dates based on specific rules associated with a group of employees. For example, if managers are eligible day 1 for benefits and the rest of employees are eligible after 90 days, these rules can be created based on corporate level or even by job code. Also, employees maybe eligible to contribute to 401k after day 1, but regular benefits do not start until after 90 days.
