Create benefit with following configuration, while creating benefit with below mentioned configuration, above mentioned error is thrown:

  • Benefit Type: Pension/Retirement Savings Plan
  • Retirement Plan type: Savings Plan

Payroll integration for 'Savings Plan' which comes under pension is not supported hence deduction start date field should be left blank.


Kindly create the 'Pension/Retirement Savings Plan' benefit with 'Savings Plan' as Retirement Plan type and select 'Payroll Integration' as No and leave the deduction start date blank.
