BHMT needs 3 things to start paying your stipend payment:

  • A copy of your KP paystub to determine your stipend pay rate: email a copy of your KP paystub to LMP-Careers@kp.org or fax it to 1-888-236-1022.
  • To receive your payment via direct deposit, complete the BHMT Direct Deposit Form, and email to LMP-Careers@kp.org or fax it with a copy of your voided check to 1-888-236-1022.
  • You need to report your stipend hours to BHMT

 

Reporting your stipend hours to BHMT
The process is different depending on your region. Follow the instructions for your region below.

 

NCAL, SCAL, HI, GA or NW regions
Your manager or timekeeper must code your stipend hours using the “BEN” code in the TIME system as part of your regular KP payroll process.

 

CO or MAS regions
Your manager or timekeeper must code your stipend hours using the “STIPEND” code as part of your regular KP payroll process.

 

If you are missing stipend payment(s) from a previous pay period, fill out the Reduced Hours Report (RHR), have your manager sign it, and fax it to 1-866-236-1022 no later than 5 p.m. PST the Tuesday following the end of each pay period. You will receive an email notice when your stipend payment is processed.
The Bi-Annual Renewal

You must meet the following requirements to renew your program participation bi-annually.

 

  1. At least twice a year, meet with your InsideTrack Academic Success Coach.
    Your Academic Success Coach will review your progress and discuss any issues. After your meeting you will receive a counselor check-in verification, which is necessary for your program renewal.
  2. Submit academic documentation.
    You must submit a copy of your grades from your previous term and class schedule for your next term in PDF or JPG format to BHMT via MyHR. Once these documents are confirmed, your program participation will be renewed.
     
    If these requirements are not met you will be suspended from the program until BHMT receives the required documentation. Submit your grades and schedule as soon as you get them to avoid being suspended.

 

Do NOT start a new stipend application unless you have changed schools/programs or were directly instructed by BHMT. When renewing make sure you upload to the correct application. Duplicate and inactive applications can lead to non-payment and possible suspension. Make sure to include your NUID# and EID# for faster identification and processing.
