OSC Automatic Processing Code 418 has been eliminated effective with the first check of January, 2001. Citistreet will now report to OSC both "regular" and "catch up" under the single 416 deduction code. The panel for deduction code 416 now has a new field defined as "Catch Up Goal Amount". This field will be populated based on the information supplied by Citistreet. This amount is the yearly max of Catch Up for employees utilizing this deduction.

The yearly Maximum for deferred compensation has been increased from $8,000 to $8,500. The amount continues to be controlled based on 25% of gross income. For employees in catch up the yearly maximum remains at $15,000.
