Employee Statuses & Effective Dates Access for Vestwell Customers 

March 23, 2023

Are you a payroll customer with a Vestwell 401(k) plan? One of your responsibilities is to track and report employee termination dates to Vestwell. In the past, you needed to have our HR software add-on to track this info directly in Patriot’s software. And if you didn’t use our HR software add-on, you had to manually track employee termination statuses and effective dates on your own. We know that’s a pain. So, we’ve opened up employee status and effective dates access to all our payroll customers with Vestwell 401(k) plans. But wait, there’s more! We’ll also automatically send that info to Vestwell as part of our seamless integration.
