Understanding the PeopleSoft Affordable Care Act (ACA) Employee Eligibility Table Data (Doc ID 2014286.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 28, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Benefits Administration - Version 9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Employee ACA Eligibility Page has three sets of dates that can be used to assist customers in determining the eligibility status of employees.  These dates are the Evaluation Begin & End dates, Administration Begin & End dates, and the Stability Period Begin & End dates.   These dates are optional and are not used by the Benefits ACA process.  The dates are determined based on the calculation method (Monthly or Look-Back Period) to calculate average weekly or monthly service hours for the employee.  

If using the Look-Back method of calculating eligibility, the three sets of dates must follow the rules described in this document.  For detailed rules refer to the IRS shared responsibility provisions regarding employee health coverage under Section 4980H of the Internal Revenue Code, enacted by the Affordable Care Act.

Determining these dates for ongoing employees is a very straightforward process.  But when new hires (or rehires) transition to ongoing employees, measurement periods may overlap.  This is a living document to help customers understand how the various begin & end dates are determined.

Note: If you identify discrepancies between our interpretation of the assessment evaluation and IRS guidance, please follow the guidance found on the IRS website.  We would appreciate notification if you find discrepancies so we may correct our documentation.
