Miscellaneous Plans - Copy and Update Record

Procedure Updated: 

Use this procedure to copy an existing employee’s DreamAhead Program (529P) record on their Miscellaneous Plans (0377) infotype and update it with necessary changes. Using the Copy action will retain the history of the previous record.


Available Miscellaneous Plans are DreamAhead Program (529P), Liberty Mutual Auto/Home Insurance (LIBM), Life Insurance (LIFE), and LTD (LTD). The DreamAhead Program (529P) is the only plan that benefits processors should maintain directly when performing these procedures.

Employees should be directed to contact the third-party plan administrators for any changes to their Liberty Mutual Auto/Home Insurance (LIBM), Life Insurance (LIFE), or LTD (LTD) enrollment because these records are maintained within HRMS through GAP files from the plan administrators

For the DreamAhead Program, before beginning this transaction, the benefits processor should have received an updated DreamAhead Payroll Deduction Form completed by the employee.

    • For changes to the (Post-tax) Contribution amount, select the Regular Contr. Tab.

    • Making a retroactive change will cause HRMS to retro within payroll, however it will not retro-collect deductions. If updating the Start date, it is recommended to use the first day of the current or a future pay period.
