This infotype stores the benefit area, first program grouping, and second program grouping assignments of the employee.
This record is essential for benefits processing. An employee must have a General Benefits Information record before enrolling in a benefits plan. During enrollment, the system refers to the first and second program grouping of employees in order to determine which benefit program the employee is permitted to participate in. A General Benefits Information record must also exist before you create anAdjustment Reasons (infotype 0378) record for an employee.
General Benefits Information records can be created in HR Personnel Administration processing or in HR Master Data.
The benefit area, first program grouping and second program grouping shown when you create a new record are default entries that can be overwritten. These defaults are determined by features set up in Benefits Customizing. To check whether test these values are up-to-date, you can run theChanges in Default Values for General Benefits Information report.
