Benefits eligibility policies let you define and exercise eligibility rules for each benefit your organization offers to workers. These rules allow you to identify the specific benefits that a given worker is eligible for.

Before you can create a benefit eligibility policy, you must first define the policy parameters that will be used by all benefit eligibility policies.

  1. Click Human resources > Setup > Policies > Benefit eligibility.

  2. On the Action Pane, click Parameters to open the Policy parameters form.

  3. The only organization type available for use with benefit eligibility policies is Company. In the Organization types: list, select Company and then click the Add button.

Policy rule types define the document and query parameters that are used when you develop specific policy rules.

  1. Click Human resources > Setup > Policies > Benefit eligibility policy rule types.

  2. Click New to create a benefit eligibility policy rule type.

  3. Enter a name and a brief description of the policy rule type.

  4. In the Query name field, select the default Application Object Tree (AOT) query to use as the starting point to develop policy rules for this policy rule type. The query indicates the source document that the policy rule type is defined for.

    For information about query names, see Policy rule type (form).

  5. Create any additional policy rule types that your organization needs, and then close the form.

A policy rule consists of a database query that is run against source documents. The policy rule types define the document and query parameters that are used when you develop policy rules. A policy rule that is used to determine worker eligibility for benefits is sometimes called a benefit eligibility rule.

  1. Click Human resources > Setup > Policies > Benefit eligibility.

  2. Double-click the policy to create policy rules for.

  3. On the Policy rules FastTab, select the policy rule type to develop a policy rule for, and then click Create policy rule.

  4. In the Effective date and Expiration date fields, enter the date range when this policy rule is effective. If you do not enter values in these fields, the policy rule will be effective when it is created, and it will never expire.

  5. Use the expression builder to define the conditions that will be used to evaluate worker records and determine whether the worker is eligible for benefits. For example, you can specify that Worker employment. Worker type must be Employee, or that Position detail. Title must be Manager.

Benefit eligibility policies help you implement your organization’s compensation strategy. As your organization grows or your benefit eligibility policies become more complex, you might have to modify these policies. For example, if your organization has acquired another organization, you might want to add that organization to an existing policy. To do so, add the organization to the Selected organization nodes: list on the Policy organizations FastTab of the Benefit eligibility policy form.

  1. Click Human resources > Setup > Policies > Benefit eligibility.

  2. Double-click the policy to modify.

  3. On the Policy organizations FastTab, the organization nodes that are affected by this policy are shown in the Selected organization nodes: list. The organization nodes that can be assigned to the policy are shown in the Available organization nodes: list. Click the Add >> or << Remove buttons to move the organization nodes to the appropriate list.

  4. On the Policy rules FastTab, you can modify any of the policy rules that belong to this policy. To select the policy rule to modify, select the policy rule type to display the list of policy rules that are associated with that type, and then select the policy rule.

    • To change the expiration date of a policy rule, click Change date and enter the new expiration date.

    • To retire a policy rule, click Retire policy rule. Policy rules are not deleted and can be reactivated at any time by changing the effective dates on the rule.

    • To change a policy rule, double-click the rule to open it, and then make the changes.
