OSC has created three additional deduction codes for three of the insurance carriers. Deduction Code 309 continues to be used for one of the carriers, however, the deduction code narrative description has been changed.
OSC has established the new codes as follows:
Deduction Code 309: PBA Group Insurance
Deduction Code 543: PBA Metlife Insurance
Deduction Code 544: PBA US Life Insurance
Deduction Code 545: PBA Short Term Disability
The PBA will submit all transactions via electronic file for enrollments, cancellations and/or changes on a biweekly basis. PBA will submit the transactions assigning the employees to the appropriate carrier. Agency update access is not available for these deductions.
