Make better business decisions using embedded analytics and a total compensation view of workers, regardless of geographic location or pay package components.

View salary components from compensation history, when a worker’s salary basis is configured to use components to itemize the salary adjustment. Previously, it did not display components when a worker’s salary basis used components.

Route Individual Compensation Approvals Based on Salary

Route approvals for individual compensation awards using the attributes of the worker’s salary record in the approval rule.

Workforce Compensation Notification Personalization

Personalize workforce compensation notifications. Administrators can now using the Oracle page Composer, selectively show and hide various components of the notification, including fields, labels, and regions. They can also edit labels, colors, and the page layout and add custom text and external links to the page.

Benefits

Benefits

Oracle Fusion Benefits is a complete, configurable and flexible global solution that enables organizations to successfully evolve and adapt to the unique needs of their workforce. The solution enables setup of traditional 'one-size fits all' plans to highly complex plans that selectively target different workforce segments with different benefit packages. Self-service capabilities present the user with an out of the box intuitive guided enrollment process with contextual information and embedded analytics.

Benefits Billing

Enable your benefits administrators to bill retirees, dependents or employees on unpaid leave of absence directly for benefit plan costs instead of charging through the payroll deduction process. Prepare and generate charges in bulk or individually, depending on the numbers involved. This flexibility enables administrators to generate the first charges for an individual. They can then ensure that the details are correct before handling all subsequent charges via the bulk processes.

Once payment is received you can record payments, including exact payments, under or over payments, and even several payments against the same bill. The application handles these different scenarios by subtracting or adding the under or overpaid amounts to the next charges and bill generated. The application settles the oldest bills first, and the highest cost option, which is most likely Medical, until it has allocated the payment made fully. You can even record payment without a bill being previously generated, and make manual adjustments.

Improved Self Service Benefits Pages

Help participants through the enrollments process more easily. Filters can be configured on train stops to enable participants to quickly see which plans and options are appropriate to them and hide the ones that aren't. Information icons are now available in each train stop to enable participants to make more in-depth enrollment decisions. Participants can also click the Select buttons or the triangular expansion widgets alongside the plan names to display any additional rates configured to help make selections. Participants can now more easily designate dependents and beneficiaries when making selections by making it a clear part of the selection process.

Validate the uptake of inbound electronic income withholding orders (e-IWOs) through an enhanced audit report.
