Having trouble completing Step 4 of Reconciliation?

There are a number of conditions that must be met before Step 4: Finalize Covered Retirees can be completed.

To complete Step 4, the following conditions must be met:

  • A Covered Retiree List must be requested since the last response file or notification file was created. If this has not occurred, the following warning appears in red at the top of the Step 4: Finalize Covered Retirees page: "A Retiree Response File or Weekly Notification File was created after the last Covered Retiree List was created. You must request another Covered Retiree List before you can finalize Reconciliation Step 4."
    Note: During Reconciliation, the Covered Retiree List must be requested in Step 3: Request List of Covered Retirees, not outside of Step 3.
  • The last requested Covered Retiree List must be created. If this has not occurred, the following warning appears in red at the top of the Step 4: Finalize Covered Retirees page: "A new Covered Retiree List was requested and will not be available for download until the next business day. Step 4 cannot be finalized when there is an outstanding Covered Retiree List request."
  • The last created Covered Retiree List has been downloaded. If this has not occurred, the following warning appears in red at the top of the Step 4: Finalize Covered Retirees page: "A new Covered Retiree List is available for download. Step 4 may not be completed until the Covered Retiree List has been downloaded."
