FAQ 33: ADP--No NHCEs--Input NHCE prior percentages only


Can you run a prior-year ADP test without loading non-HCE employee data, as long as the prior year non-HCE percents are input on the ADP Test screen in the Values section of the plan specs?


You can input prior year non-HCE percents in the specs without inputting the actual non-HCE employees and the ADP test will run fine. Just make sure to also input at least a "1" in the Non-HCE "Prior Number for ADP Test" and "Prior Number for ACP Test" fields on the ADP Counts screen so that the system will recognize that there were non-HCEs in the plan last year.
