Save Time Using Payroll Integration Solutions

When your payroll system and retirement plan administration are integrated, employee information (such as contribution rate or hours worked) flows between the two providers seamlessly and efficiently—allowing business owners and their advisors to focus on growing their business.

Big benefits for your business

By integrating your payroll processing with your retirement plan, you can:

  • Save time and money by eliminating the need to manually enter data in multiple places, so you’ll have more time to focus on your business.
  • Reduce errors by automating contribution transmissions and data collection.
  • Minimize administrative tasks with easy participant eligibility tracking, enrollment, and loans with 360° integration. Any changes made by the employee are automatically sent to the payroll provider.
  • Help expedite retirement plan payroll deposits through an efficient and automated process, ensuring the timely investment of employee contributions.

How does payroll integration work?

Choose between two types of payroll integration: 360° and 180°.

360° payroll integration

With 360° payroll integration, payroll data is exchanged between the payroll provider, the employer, and Ascensus. When an employee makes a change to their savings rate or loan status, the data is automatically transmitted to the payroll provider—and employee updates are made within the payroll system’s records. With the 360° model, employers have minimal involvement outside of processing payroll.

180° payroll integration

With 180° payroll integration, payroll data is exchanged between the payroll provider and Ascensus, helping automate the contribution process. The employer receives weekly notifications from Ascensus if an employee makes an election change. The employer must manually enter those changes into their payroll software program.

Get started with payroll integration

Find the payroll provider you currently use or are interested in using on the list of partners we work with, and contact the provider directly to inquire about payroll integration. The provider will appoint a specialist to handle the payroll integration setup.

Provide Ascensus with the payroll integration specialist information, and Ascensus will work with the payroll provider to have the plan set up with payroll integration.
