- Recordkeeping System. A participant in the 401(k) plan makes a deferral rate change request into the recordkeeping system.
- Plan Administrator. The employee's request creates an email notice and a report to the plan administrator listing the new deferral data.
- Payroll System. The new deferral data is updated in the payroll system.
