FSA Coverage Amount Not Displayed
We recently moved to EhP6 (portal version 7.02), and I am testing Open Enrollment in the new ESS. We have activated business function HCM_ESS_WDA_2. I noticed that neither the "Benefits Summary" nor the "Review and Save" screen displays the FSA Coverage Amount. For example, if the employee chooses $1300 for Health FSA plan, you can see the weekly pre-tax cost of $25, but you cannot see the $1300 unless you click on the plan name and view it in the pop-up box. Seems that the coverage amount should be displayed out-of-the-box Can anyone help?

The ‘Coverage’ column is relevant for Health and insurance plans and not relevant for contribution type Plans like spending account Plans.
Hence it will not make sense to display the Spending account contribution amount under ‘Coverage’ column.
This is the reason why SAP display the cost per period under the ‘Pre-Tax costs’ column and the Annual contribution in the Plan details pop up screen.
This information is not unavailable in the UI, but if you still want to see the annual contribution amount in the main screen, then you will need to modify the component configuration you are using for Review and Save.
For example, if you are using the standard configuration itself, then you will need to modify the configuration ‘HRESS_CC_BEN_REV_N_SAVE’
Apart from the columns that are already added for display, you could add the column ‘BEN_FSA_AMT’ in this configuration and then it will get displayed in the ‘Election Summary’ step and the ‘Review and Save’ step.
Bottom line here is, SAP cannot provide this in the standard but you could get this by adding the field in the component configuration.
