Once the payroll category setup is complete precede to employee master paycard to set the individual contribution rate under the deduction tab. Depending on how the payroll category was setup you enter appropriate rate in the factor field. If the category was set as standard percentage for all enter 100 here. If the rate is to be set individually then enter the employee’s contribution rate here.
