ACR 60501 – SPRS System Change
New SPRS Deduction Codes Related to ERS Group 4
Sept. 1, 2022


Application Change Request (ACR) 60501 modified the Standardized Payroll/Personnel Reporting System (SPRS) to create five new deduction codes related to the Employees Retirement System (ERS) Group 4. This change is effective Sept. 1, 2022.

Note: Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS) HR/Payroll Central agencies should see Application Service Provider (ASP) 29767 (login required). If you do not have access to the ASP Solution Center, contact your agency’s CAPPS support staff for more information.


The new Cash Balance Retirement Plan (Group 4) established by Senate Bill 321, 87th Legislature, Regular Session, applies to any state employee who becomes a member of ERS on or after Sept. 1, 2022, as well as any former state employee who withdrew his or her retirement account and returned to state employment on or after Sept. 1, 2022.

Five new deduction codes were added to SPRS to reflect these options.


This ACR established deduction codes EL4 (LECOS Retirement), ER4 (ERS Retirement), ES4 (Elected State Official Retirement), LE4 (LECOS Retirement Supplement) and LR4 (Legislative Retirement) specific to Group 4, effective Sept. 1, 2022.


The payroll module was modified to accept the new deduction codes.
