  • Savings Plan


Previously, all benefit related fields existed within the Benefit object. This included fields for all benefit types such as Insurance, Savings Plan, Allowance, and so on. As there are more fields for various benefit types now, keeping all the benefit related fields in one object could create performance issues. To prevent this, the existing Savings Plan related fields in benefit objects have been moved into new objects. As a result, the Story reports, Business Rules, and Integrations that refer to these fields from the current objects will stop working after 2H 2023 release.


If you are using the benefitSavingsPlanEmployerContribution field in any of the custom benefit enrollment configuration UI, then you must remove it as it can create issues during enrollment.
