    Please set up a 401(k) plan that includes both 401(k) and 401(k) Roth. The carrier is Principal.  They want the contributions and deferrals to be ACH’ed to them.  Set up the payee and use a routing # from your bank.  Make up an account number.  You will have two EE Contribution Plan Matches, one for regular EEs that has a tiered match of First 1% @ 100%, next 2% @ 50% and the last 3% at 25%.  The second match for executives has one tier.  First 4% at 100%.  The company also has an Eligible Wage Plan Match (Safe Harbor) Match of 3%.  It will go to all EEs.   EE deferrals begin first day of the month after 6 months from their hire date with a forced deferral of 3% unless they opt out or choose a different amount.  The client wants this to happen automatically.  Matches begin on the first day of the month following 1 year from their hire date.  Start date of the plan was 1/1/2013.  Use all eligible wage earnings you have except any reimbursement type earnings.  Do not use any Eligible Wage Memo Calcs  nor any Eligible Wage Reductions. Three of the EEs have loans. The client tells you that 2 of them are first time loans and one of them is on his third loan. Please email screen shots to your presenter.
