Existing Plan Option Not Getting Into Interim And Suspend Mode After Adding A New Beneficiary (Doc ID 2317209.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2022

Information in this document applies to any platform.


You have enabled  the “Dependent Certification Required” Fast Formula in the system to trigger a certification when there is a new dependent added to the existing plan option or to a new plan option. This is working as expected except for one scenario as stated below:

Scenario Number 1 (Working as expected):

A use case where an employee is previously in the “Emp+Spouse” plan option moves to the “Emp+Family” plan option and the certification is triggered for the new dependent added.
The old plan option (Emp+Spouse) is going into Interim mode and newly selected plan option (Emp+Family) is going into suspend mode till the required certificate is submitted in the system.

Scenario Number2 (NOT working as expected):

If the employee was previously enrolled into the “Emp+Family” plan option and if the employee now wants to add a new dependent to the existing plan option (i.e., Emp+Family) only then the required certification is getting triggered but it is not creating two records in the system - one a suspended and another for interim as it is doing in use case 1.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Add a new dependent  to existing plan option – ( Emp & Child(ren))
2. Check View enrollments results> the plan does not go into interim and suspended
