Additional Details

Until now, you could only determine the general ledger account per internal claim type. However, a claim can have many different payment items (such as benefit, tax, interest, principal of the policy loan) that need to be assigned to different general ledger accounts.

Now, in Customizing of a benefit type, you can assign the required standard data for the FS-CD document (see “Effects on Customizing” below) and thus determine the general ledger per benefit type.

Note Note

The standard data defined per benefit type is only valid for the data fields HVORG (main transaction) and TVORG (sub-transaction).

End of the note.
