How can I enter a limit for a worker?

Zenefits Payroll monitors the IRS mandated 401(k) contribution limits for your workforce, but what if you have a new hire who contributed to a 401(k) at a previous job? You can now add a worker’s previous 401(k) contributions, so that Zenefits can still monitor their limits. 

How can I enter a limit for a worker? 

  1. Log in to your admin account. 
  2. Click on Payroll
  3. Go to the People tab. 
  4. Click on the worker you’re adding a limit to. 
  5. Scroll down to the Deduction section. 
  6. For a new deduction, click +Add Deduction, select 401(k), and click Add
  7. For an existing deduction, click the pencil icon. 
  8. Confirm the amount to be deducted/contributed per pay run. 
  9. Enter any prior amounts deducted/contributed outside of Zenefits. 
  10. Add any custom annual limits. 
  11. Click Add once finished. 
 If you haven’t set up any 401(k) pay types yet, see this page.
