BN - Annual Benefits Base Rate (ABBR)

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

PeopleSoft delivers a way to define an amount to be used in the calculation of life and disability insurance. This amount is referred to as Annual Benefits Base Rate or ABBR. Separate ABBR’s must be entered for State Group Life (SGL) and Income Continuation Insurance (ICI) since these amounts can be different. An automated process will enter the appropriate ABBR amounts for those newly hired. However, there are times when Benefit Administrators at the Institutions will need to manually review, add, or update ABBR amounts.
