Processing the Savings Minimum WED Report in HRS


The Savings Minimum Report is an error report created to identify Savings Plan enrollment with a per paycheck contribution below the minimum amount.

Process Considerations:

  • Employees can elect to enroll into the UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) plan before-tax or after-tax (Roth) at anytime by submitting a Salary Reduction Agreement.
  • Employees are required to contribute a minimum amount based on their Benefit Primary Job pay frequency.  The minimum per paycheck amount is $8 for a bi-weekly employee or $20 for monthly paid employees.  If an employee submits a Salary Reduction Agreement and the amount is below the minimum, Benefit Administrators will need to advise the employee about the minimum contribution amount and determine if they want to increase the election or stop contributions.
  • Bi-weekly employees who elected the minimum will be identified on the WED report if they transfer to a monthly paid position.
  • Employees are able to make contribution changes at anytime through Self-Service once they are enrolled into the TSA pre-tax or Roth post-tax plan.  There are Self-Service page edits that prevent employees from electing a contribution amount below the minimum.    (Note:  Any changes to contributions for Wisconsin Deferred Compensation (WDC) or WDC Roth plans must be made directly with Empower Retirement and cannot be made through the UW.)
