Forms received during this time frame will be processed beginning on 2/22/17.
Employees’, who elect to defer profit sharing at 100%, should be aware that the deferral is after all legal and regulatory deductions have been taken (e.g. taxes, garnishments, union dues etc.) Once these obligations have been satisfied the remainder of the payment will be deferred. If the employee is receiving payment for profit sharing in the same check as regular wages, the employee’s regular wages may be used to cover any legal and regulatory deductions. Please remember that the amount of profit sharing deferred will be exempt from Federal/State income tax, but will still be subject to Social Security and Medicare taxes. Please ensure that employees review the information provided to them by Employee Benefits if they have questions on their deferral.
Any employee who has a current overpayment balance for payroll, relocation or short term disability will have up to 50% of the payment applied to that overpayment.
Profit sharing will be displayed on the paystub using the code: PRO SHR
Employees electing to defer profit sharing will see that deferral under the code:
If you have employees’ who are paid via a Pay Card not issued by GM (Green Dot, Metabank, etc) who contact you stating that they did not receive their usual pay on the Card, please instruct them to contact their wage card's financial institution to increase the limit on your card.
