Savings Plans - Change Existing Record

Procedure Updated: 

Use this procedure to make a correction to or end an employee’s Savings Plans (0169) infotype record.


If your benefits office has received notification from DRS  that an employee has been approved for an Override for Special Catch-Up Limits, a new record will arrive in HRMS via GAP. Once the new record arrives, it is the processor's responsibility to select the Start Special Catch-up Limit Override box located on the Bonus Contribution tab. This will process the Special Catch-up.

This action should not be taken in retro, so if this is missed, the dates should be adjusted to process in the current period.
