Update Contact Information for ACA 1094-C and 1095-C
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) requires employers to offer affordable health insurance that provides minimum essential coverage to their full-time (and full-time equivalent) employees and their dependents or incur tax penalties.
The Comptroller’s office has updated ACA 1094-C and 1095-C Reporting Requirements (FPP F.039) for calendar year 2023. Agencies should review this guidance for how it affects your agency. Your agency is responsible for 1094-C and 1095-C reporting.
CAPPS Central agencies are required to update the Manage Agency Contact Info page in CAPPS by Dec. 31.

USAS/TINS File Submission

Direct Deposit Settlement Dates
To determine the direct deposit settlement date of a payment, exclude state and federal holidays listed on the System Outages and Holidays calendar.
Since financial institutions are closed, no direct deposit activity occurs on those days. Agencies must consider these dates when determining when to submit their payments to ensure prompt payment and avoid late payment interest.
Reminder – New TINS Reversal/Reclamation Web App
A Direct Deposits – Reversals and Reclamations (DDEP) web application and the automation of direct deposit return money were implemented in phases via Application Change Request (ACR) 60027 and ACR 60227 when the final phase migrated in January 2023.
Effective Jan. 2, 2024, agencies must process their own reversals and reclamations via DDEP. See ACR 60027 for more information, the DDEP Web Application for step-by-step instructions, and Direct Deposit Payments Made in Error for DDEP policy and procedure updates.
Contact Payment Services with questions.
