    Amounts for deficiencies and deductions not collected are identified and provided by the pay office in free form text (FFT).


    Code 582 is used to report the amount to be transferred to an RRSP. This code must be input in conjunction with a termination entitlement payment, as identified in Section PPIM 4-4-71-1.

    Note: An RRSP payment is automatically produced for each RRSP deduction (code 582). The RRSP payment (generated code 120) is a supplementary cheque made to the employee's name with the following notation printed below the name: FOR DEPOSIT TO RRSP ACCOUNT ONLY.

  4. FIELD 21.

    If any deductions are collected from a "leave - payment in lieu" (code 029), this field is left BLANK. For all deductions collected from a termination entitlement payment identified in Section PPIM 4-4-71-1, "SS" should be input in this field. However, for deduction code 582 this field MUST ALWAYS BE "SS".

    Note: The RRSP amount reported under code 582 may be reduced if there are insufficient funds remaining after the collection of overpayments and deficiencies.


    • If the EFFECTIVE FROM date is prior to the PSSA 2 coming into force (CIF) pay period and the EFFECTIVE TO date is AFTER the PSSA 2 CIF pay period, the pay action must be split into two.
