BN56.1 - Compensation History
Use Compensation History (BN56.1) to track employee compensation amounts and
participation hours for defined contribution and defined benefit plans for
each plan year. You can also record history for years before you began using
the Benefits application.
Plan years are based on the plan start date in BN15.1 (Benefit Plan). The
Benefits application tracks compensation and hours using the compensation pay
class in the Vesting Compensation form tab of BN15.1.
PR199 (Payroll Close) updates BN56.1 with current compensation and
participation hours for employees enrolled in defined contribution and defined
benefit plans. PR199 uses the date of a payment to determine which plan year
For 401(k) or 403(b) plans, the plan year compensation is used to determine
if the employee has met the maximum compensation limit.
If the employee benefit is a percent of compensation, PR140 (Earnings and
Deductions Calculations) stops the employee's contribution when the employee's
compensation equals the maximum compensation limit.
