The FIMMAS Repetitive Payments Module is the calculation and payment engine for annuities and claims requiring periodic payments. The Repetitive Payments Module integrates with other FIMMAS functional modules for Policy Administration, Client Administration, Reporting, Contract Accounting, Actuarial Support, and System Rules Administration.
The Repetitive Payments Module supports a straightforward series of payments (such as immediate annuities and personal disability income benefits) and the more complex series of payments associated with structured settlements.

The Repetitive Payments Module of FIMMAS provides capabilities for:

  • Searching for existing claims by Claim Number, Contract Number, Client ID, Group ID, and Claim Status.
  • Adding new claims, automatically calculating payments and setting up payments into payment streams.
  • Approving, denying, contesting, resisting, suspending, re-certifying, and terminating claims and payments.
  • Pre-scheduling payment changes, such as Social Security, Workers Compensation and Residual offsets.
  • Managing exclusions and federal and state tax withholdings.
  • Multiple payment modes, including weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annually.
  • Single or multiple payees or assignees.
