Introduction

ACR 44033 created new deduction and state match codes related to Payroll Retirement Contribution and Law Enforcement and Custodial Officer Supplemental (LECOS) Retirement contributions on Sept. 3, 2013. The effective date of the changes is Sept. 1, 2013.

Issue

In addition, Senate Bill 1and Senate Bill 1459 from the 83rd Legislature, Regular Session, established a need for a new vendor ID structure related to LECOS Retirement contributions.
