In 2013 we will have two components to our health flex spending account. The employee contribution and an employer donated amount. The employee portion will be deducted bi-weekly throughout the year; so for example, if the employee elects $1,000 employee amount would be $38.46 biweekly. We would like the the employer’s contribution to be added to the employees’ account at the start of the year in one lump sum ($600).

We have been successful in attaching the employer portion (using model WT BR40 under IMG Wage Types for Plans) to the plan but have not been successful in having it deduct all of the $600 in payperiod 1. Although the Contribution Variant Period is set to Annually, the system consistently spreads the $600 over the entire year thereby showing a biweekly amount of $23.08. We want the entire $600 to show on the first paycheck only.

Has anyone attempted to do something like this and tied a lump sum employer amount to a plan that is deducted from the employees’ paycheck biweekly? If so, how did you go about it?

Thank you in advance

  • Hi Brent,

    Please explore a little more your requirement. I am confused.

    Do you want to display whole ER contribution amount in PP 1 paycheck but deduct it bi-weekly or get it deducted once in a year?

    if once in a yera follow the steps as given below –

    1 configure a deductiom model by setting variant annual and check the PP for deduction and uncheck all other. In this case, total amount will be prorated as whole and will be deducted on selected PP.

  • Hi Brent,

    I have a similar situation with my current client, were you able to find a solution?

    Any suggestions / inputs are much appreciated.
