BN15.1 - Benefit Plan
Use Benefit Plan (BN15.1) to define benefit plans for employees, retirees,
and COBRA participants.
The types of benefit plans you can define include, but are not limited to,
health, dental, and disability. To further define most plan types, you select
a category. For example, for spending accounts, you indicate whether it's a
medical reimbursement or dependent care. For health plans, you indicate
whether it's a medical or vision plan.
Within each plan, you can define unique coverage, contributions, and waiting
periods for different groups of employees. For example, you can define a plan
with a 60-day waiting period for part-time employees and a 30-day waiting
requirement for full-time employees. The plan could offer union employees life
coverage as one, two or three times their salary, while non-union employees
can choose between one to five times their salary in coverage. Contributions
for the plan could be an annual $1,000 for employees in the Mid-west and
$2,000 for employees on the west coast.
