3rd party apps are now fully integrated with integrated payroll!
What does this mean?
Previously, we were unable to support 3rd Party app deductions because we could only have one active record per benefit type (3rd Party App benefit type). The updated logic allows us to look at 3rd Party enrollment by plan and not benefit. We are able to have multiple active records per benefit type which allows us to properly send separate 3rd party enrollments to payroll.
How do I know if I have a 3rd Party App plan?
Within your Plan --> Benefits link, you will see a 'Thirdparty Options' header akin to the photo below:
Payroll codes need to be configured and transmission settings must be properly set in order to send 3rd party app deductions to payroll. Be sure that a unique code is added for each 3rd Party app plan. We do not support "Coverage Level Base" deduction codes for 3rd party app plans.
John Doe is hired 2/15/2018. He enrolls in Colonial Life Accident and Universal Life plan effective 4/1/18. When he completes enrollments, EN write on John's recurring payroll deduction record, will see two separate lines of active deductions based on the two different Colonial plans he enrolled in. Two different transmissions are sent to payroll with the effective date, deduction code, and per pay cost to properly be taken out of John's pay check.
John's company has OE effective 1/1/19. During OE, John decides to re-enroll in the Colonial Life Accident plan but wants to drop the Universal Life plan. After OE closeout, EN will send the new effective date for the CL Accident plan to payroll and will send the end date for the Universal Life plan so that the deduction is no longer taken out of John's check.
