The Identify Age-50 Extensions process identifies the employees who are age 50 or more and it creates Age-50 limit extension records that increase the 402(g) Savings Plan limits, the 457 Savings Plan limits, or both for elective deferrals as authorized by IRS regulations.

This process identifies and allows for those employees eligible for the 457 15 year catch-up, and the 403(b) age 50 extensions, to have the additional deduction limit of $xxxx.xx added to their 457 and 403(b) plan - Verify limit amounts with IRS.  The 402(g) is the limit type for the 403(b) plan.  
This process should be ran prior to payroll processing.

NOTE:  Run this process separately for each limit type, i.e., 402(g) and 457.
