Agencies are responsible for end dating payroll deductions in PayServ to suspend an employee’s 403(b) tax sheltered annuity plan contributions when the employee has been placed on paid Workers’ Compensation leave.
If the employee wishes to resume 403(b) tax sheltered annuity plan contributions upon return from a paid Workers’ Compensation leave, the agency must insert a row to restart the 403(b) payroll deduction.
This applies to the following payroll deduction codes:
Supplemental Annuity Prog
TIAA Special Annuity
SUNY TDA Fidelity
SUNY Tax Deferred Annuity
ED TDA Copeland
Locked_Query_083 (EE annuity contrib while on WC) has been developed in the PS Query database for agency use to identify employees who have both paid Workers’ Compensation leave and deductions for a 403(b) tax sheltered annuity plan in the same pay period. Employees identified by Locked_Query_083 results must have their deductions end dated the day prior to the first day the employee receives paid Workers’ Compensation leave.
Locked_Query_083 should be run every pay period allowing sufficient time for agencies to enter any necessary PaySev transactions. Please refer to the Agency Submission Schedule Job Aid for each payroll period’s exact date of agency On-Line Transactions Cutoff.
NOTE: Please share this bulletin with the appropriate Human Resource personnel.
