6 INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT. EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE. ADMINISTRATIVE INNOVATION. INSTITUTIONAL PERFORMANCE. PA Bug 2008 User Conference 6 Combined Limits Processing For Deduction/Benefit Maximum Monitoring

7 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 7 Tax Deferred Retirement Plans (U.S.) 403(b), 401(k), and 457(b) IRS Rules stipulate maximums on; Elective Deferral Limit Annual Total Contribution Limit Annual Compensation Limit Catch-Up Provisions Age 50+ Catch-Up 15-Year Rule

8 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 8 Maximum Tracking Figures for 2008 Elective Deferrals (403(b), 401(k), and 457(b) plans)$15,500 Annual Contribution Limit$46,000 Annual Compensation Limit$230, Catch-Up Contributions$5, Year Rule$3,000 yr / $15,000 cap

9 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 9 Background Considerations Currently, tracking multiple Benefits against maximums require Associations on the rule form No dollar-based Employee/Employer Calc Rules No automated maximum tracking against a combined Employee/Employer total No automated provision for Maximum Compensation tracking Difficult to configure and monitor Catch-Up employees

10 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 10 Combined Limits Logic! So, we had an idea Went to work on HR 8.0 Built processing rules that will monitor: Combined Employee and Employer totals Compensation maximum (Applicable Gross) Allow switching an employee to Catch-Up rules

11 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 11 Process Flow Combined Limit Code: Combined Limit Code PTRBDCL Benefit/Deduction Rule PTRBDCA Employee Deduction PDADEDN Benefit Deduction Quick Set-up PDABDSU Payroll Proof & Calculation PHPPROF

12 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 12 Step 1 – Combined Limit Rule Form (PTRBDCL) Establish code & rule that specifies Employee Limit, Employer Limit, Combined Limit, and Applicable Gross Limit.

13 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 13 Step 2 – Map Combined Limit Code to Deduction/Benefit Establish code on PTRBDCA for appropriate Deduction/Benefit program(s); Field enterable when the Calculation Rules are 11, 16, 21, 28 or 29.

14 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 14 Step 3 – Affiliate Combined Limit Codes - PTRBDCA Define all Benefit/Deduction codes that will operate together on the Combined Limit Deduction Group window; Replaces Associated block where maximums are compared across the benefit codes.

15 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 15 Step 4 – Include the code on Deduction Record Combined Limit Code must be present on the employees deduction record, PDADEDN; Code would be present on each record to which the limit checking should apply; Records should be associated by the new Combined Limit Deduction Group, so all totals would be evaluated together; Combined Limit Code is located on Deduction Detail record, allowing for effective-dated changes.

16 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 16

17 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 17 Step 5 – Quick Set-Up Form Change For new employees, Combined Limits Rule can be defaulted or changed on PTRBDSU;

18 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 18 Step 6 – Combined Limit Code on the History Record Each entry or change is captured on the Deduction History record – displayed on PEIDHIS.

19 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 19 Step 7 – Verify Consistency during Payroll Processing Edit installed in the Payroll Proof process, PHPPROF, to ensure all Combined retirement deductions carry the same Combined Limit Rule Code; Note: An employee can have multiple Combined Limit Code Deductions processed on the same payroll. Those Benefit/Deductions that are mapped together via the Combined Limit Deduction Group, must carry the same Combined Limit Code.

20 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 20 Step 8 – Payroll Calculation Processing New processing rules using Combined Limits When a specific Limit is reached, the calculation will verify if any other Limit has been reached. Example: Employee has reached the limit on deduction portion - $15,500; however, has not reached the Combined Limit of $46,000 for Employee + Employer contributions; and If an additional contribution is available under the Employer Limit, the Benefit portion will continue until the Combined Limit is reached.

21 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 21 Step 9 – Benefit/Deduction Mass Change Process Mass Change rule and process has been enhanced to include the Combined Limit Code – PTRBDMC/PDPBDMC Can assist in migration to Combined Limit Codes when implementing;

22 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 22 Step 10 – Installation and Activation Scripts Install script for all new tables and columns for 8.0; Migration Alternatives; 1.Manually build Combined Limit Rules for deductions; PTRBDCL 2.Manually populate the appropriate records on PTRBDCA; Combined Limit Code and Combined Limit Group 3.Manually populate the existing records on PDADEDN or use the Benefit/Deduction Mass Change process to update employee records; 4.Manually adjust those employees that should have a 50+ Catch=Up or 15-Year Rule, for higher maximums.

23 PA Bug 2008 User Conference 23 Summary 3 New Benefit/Deduction Calculation Rule option for additional flexibility; New Combined Limit processing for multiple limit checking.
