SAM II Agencies - Missed Employee Retirement Contributions

Dec 15, 2021, 08:26 AM by MOSERS

When employee retirement contributions are not withheld from an employee’s payroll check due to service corrections or retroactive enrollments, the missed contribution(s) will be deducted from the employee’s future payroll checks.

In situations when the employee retirement contribution was not deducted from multiple payroll checks, the payment of the missed contributions will be spread over the same number of payroll checks. For example, if employee contributions were not deducted from two payroll checks, catch-up contributions will be collected in addition to regular retirement contributions from a total of two future payroll checks.

MOSERS will notify the Office of Administration (OA) when contributions were not withheld from a member’s payroll and need to be collected. OA will notify the employee’s human resource personnel, who should relay the information to their employee to make them aware of the additional contribution that will be withheld from their upcoming payroll check(s).
