BN - Printing a Manual Benefits Billing Invoice
This KB explains how to create and print a MANUAL invoice for an employee that is enrolled in benefit billing. This will be used when we need to create an invoice outside of the normal monthly benefits billing calculation process which is run on the Tuesday evening, on or before to the 20th of each month.
Examples of when to use this function:
- Benefit billing invoices are mailed to the employees once a month on the Wednesday, on or before the 20th of each month, by the Service Center. These invoices are loaded to Cypress where they are maintained for 90 days. If you need to reprint an existing invoice, see BN - Reprint Benefits Billing Invoices.
- You run the reprint/print process when we wish to create a manual invoice that includes any charge adjustment or manual charge entry following the initial load to Cypress by the Service Center. Submit a ticket to the UWSC if you need charge adjustments processed for your employee.
- An employee is identified as missing the last two months of deductions a few days after the monthly invoices have been mailed. You need to create and mail an MANUAL invoice immediately. First, you create the charges through the benefit billing manual charge entry process. (KB for Creating Manuals Charges in Benefit Billing is being created) Once the charges have been created you run the reprint/print process using the current benefit billing period (i.e. Today's date 3/20/2017 = 1704)
- An employee is going on a LOA for the next six-months and they are requesting an invoice for the future charges so they may prepay. First, you create the benefit billing charges through the benefit billing manual charges entry process. Once the charges have been created you run the reprint/print process using the future benefit billing period. (i.e. Today's date 3/20/2017, returning 10/1/2017 use benefit billing period 1709 which is the September 2019 deduction month.)
