* The employer should only deduct the full amount indicated on the AVC Employer Payroll Deduction Report. If the member has no pay or not enough pay during a particular pay period, the employer should not apply a deduction at all ($0). The employer will need to report this in the “notes” section of the AVC Employer Payroll Deduction Confirmation Report, as an adjustment, to OMERS. Employers who have more than one payroll for AVC payroll deduction purposes should contact OMERS for additional remittance information.
