Out of Compliance BELIs

It is very important that an employee’s BELI is correct, since it determines the benefits for which an individual is eligible. The Service Center is responsible for ensuring that an employee has an appropriately assigned BELI. A change in BELI may be required because of changes in the employee's conditions of employment such as the ending of an appointment, a change in percent time, or the extension of an appointment. Whenever a change to an employee's appointment is made, the BELI and any assigned Status Qualifier code should be reviewed to ensure they are still appropriate. The Service Center is responsible reviewing BELI compliance reports and making adjustments as necessary to resolve situations that report as out of compliance.

Out-of-Compliance Reports

The grid below shows BELI conflicts that must be resolved by the location (indicated by a “yes” in the block). Conflicts may be resolved by adjusting:

  • the assigned BELI (to match the derived BELI), or
  • the appointment percentage (to more accurately reflect the employee’s actual schedule), or
  • the employee’s schedule (to more accurately reflect the appointment)

If the block is empty, you do not need to resolve the discrepancy, since either the Assigned BELI and Derived BELI match, or the combination of Assigned BELI and Derived BELI does not affect underlying benefits eligibility.

Occasionally, letters or symbols will appear as the Derived or Assigned BELI, indicating the following:

X = May appear in the Derived BELI field.

Indicates that no appointment is entered into the system at the time the derived BELI is determined and the average hours worked is zero. Generally, a BELI should not be assigned until the appointment is determined. Compliance discrepancy could be resolved by entering complete appointment data.

U = May appear in the Derived BELI field.

Indicates that the average hours worked is zero and the appointment is not 50% or more for 12 months or more. This discrepancy will generally resolve itself once the employee receives pay, so it may only indicate a compliance problem if it continues to appear on the report for more than one month. In those cases, if no time has been worked, the employee may not be eligible for benefits.

? = May appear in the Assigned BELI field.

Indicates that the employee has been terminated.
