For a legacy role, the Benefit Obligation reports (employee and account) needs USPS_STANDARD_BENEFITOBLIGATION_REPORT granted.

They, also, must have USPS_STANDARD_EMPLOYEE_VIEW in order to run these reports.

The Benefit Obligation By Account provides information about the dollar amount of benefit obligations a district would incur if employees were to use their entire sick, vacation, and personal balances.

This report is created automatically when the Fiscal Year End has been closed (June Posting Period is closed) and will be found in the File Archive/YYYY Fiscal Year Reports. If trying to process the report at a later time if any contracts were added whose date range overlaps the 'as of' date, the report would be different than what was processed at Fiscal Year End. It also checks the current position job status for 'Active', so if any Positions are no longer active, it would change the report results and also pay accounts that were changed would affect the report as well.

The 'as of' date is used primarily to get the state of the Compensations as they were at that date, but it does not guarantee an identical report.

The Account sort options include all pay account dimensions including appropriation level and entire account code.  The Benefit Obligation By Account also has the ability to create spreadsheets. These spreadsheets can be used by any district, but may be particularly helpful to those districts on GAAP.

The program uses the 'Eligibility Flags' from the employee's Position; the Unit Amount, Pay Unit and the Hours In Day field from the Compensation; and the Leave Unit from the employee's Leave screen.

In order for an employee's job to appear in the Benefit Obligation By Account report there must be an active pay account assigned to the same position that has the eligibility flag set to 'Y'. If the program can not find a pay account for the Position, the employee is omitted from the report.
