That Perfectly Wrapped Gift with the Fancy Bow — ACA Year-End Resources

Working on Computer

Year-end is in full swing, and everything is about the hustle and bustle. And because year-end processing is the gift that keeps on giving, even into the new year, we want to share a specially wrapped gift adorned with a beautiful bow. Our gift to you is a year-end resource page with all your essential ACA year-end reporting resources. Here are a few examples of what you will find on the page.

ACA Manager Checklist

The ACA Manager Checklist is your guide to all things ACA year-end reporting. With updates to ACA reporting requirements and IRS policy, we want to ensure that you have the support and groundwork you need for the most accurate ACA reporting. The checklist is divided into six comprehensive sections to ensure you complete all the required tasks for a successful ACA filing. 

  1. Healthcare plans
  2. Benefit profiles
  3. ACA profiles
  4. Employee information
  5. Reporting that can assist in the audit process
  6. ACA system settings

Access and download the checklist today!

We have something new this year for UKG Ready ACA managers! The ACA Manager Checklist will also be available in the readyConnect panel to help you keep track of your progress along the way. The panel checklist complements the details in the downloadable version of the checklist on the UKG™ Kronos Community.
