How to make contributions each pay cycle
To maintain your plan, a new payroll register file is required each payroll cycle. This is used to determine what amount gets debited from your account and allocated as an employee contribution.
Each payroll cycle:
- Run your payroll
- Log in to the Employer Dashboard
- Populate and submit your payrollregister.xlsx file within 3 business days of running payroll
Note: This is the same process as completed in Step 6 of the plan setup
Where applicable, give your payroll service provider the necessary instructions to implement this task.
If you need to pause employee contributions due to parental leave, sabbatical or other reasons, simply update their employment status in the employee.xlsx file to Terminated and exclude the employee from the payroll register you upload us each pay cycle, until they have returned to work.
