FAQ 897: DB/DC Combo - Status Code E in combination report

Problem:

I am running a combined CB/PS 401(a)(4) test and certain individuals are excluded from contributions in either plan. I have coded them as an E in secondary eligibility for the PS and E for eligibility in the CB, but they are still showing up as a 0% in the gateway test and causing the plan to fail 401(a)(4). How can I exclude these participants from the gateway test?


Solution:

The values in the employees' records are used for the combined report. If you have done any calculations prior to setting the participant's status code to E, you will need to manually remove the values (reported in the DC/DB report) before running the report. You may need to remove values from both the DC and DB files for those employees.
