Reproducing the Issue

Expected output:
During the enrollment, with below steps:

  1. Go to Profile of any Employee of eligible Employee on the system and navigate to Benefit Portlet.
  2. Look for the Open for Enrollment Benefit with Benefit type Insurance.
  3. On Enrolling for Field select Child.
  4. On Enroll Dependents tab, the expected output should be only the dependents with type Child will show up on the selection.

  5. This kind of output is maintained on Eligible Enrollee Options in Insurance Plan.

Unexpected output:

  • Follow above provided steps and on the Enrolling for field, select Employee Only.
  • The output would be all the listed Dependents on Employee records are showing up on the selection.

  • Despite in Eligible Enrollee Options, there's no maintained Dependent types.


Expected System Behavior


Listing of the dependents during the enrollment when there is no data maintained under Select Allowed Dependent Types is expected behavior. However, if any of the listed dependents are chosen, then on save of the enrollment the system would throw an error saying "Selected dependent is not eligible for this plan. Please refer details of the selected "Enrolling For" option for eligible dependents."

Note: If the selected Enrolling for is Employee Only, make sure that Minimum and Maximum Allowed Dependents are maintainted correctly.
