Unlock an Extension of Your HR Department

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has brought unprecedented changes to workforce management and compliance. Employers often underestimate the amount of time and expertise required to effectively manage ACA compliance tasks. ACA compliance tasks include data collection, calculating eligibility, completing tax forms and more.

The 2019 reporting year has brought yet another year of success to the thousands of valued clients that we serve. In 2019, ACA Management Solutions have:

  • managed the eligibility of over 50 million employees;
  • provided over 7.5 million 1095-C forms to employees; and
  • filed over 7.5 million 1094/5-C forms to the IRS on time, by the IRS deadline of March 31, 2020.

ACA Compliance is a Year-long Process

While the 2019 reporting season is behind us, the support that our clients receive does not diminish. ACA compliance is a year-long process, requiring ongoing maintenance and tracking of benefit eligibility. One of the most important tasks is ensuring offers of benefits are made on time.

Services include assisting with data submissions, compliance questions, and the annual reporting process. As an extension of our clients’ HR departments, Equifax Workforce Solutions helps alleviate the oftentimes frustrating and burdensome process of managing ACA compliance, and helps to better mitigate financial risk. In addition, Equifax Workforce Solutions began offering state reporting functionality for New Jersey and Washington D.C. This is another example of how Equifax is monitoring the needs of our clients and why Equifax Workforce Solutions continues to be an industry leader in providing ACA services.
