Submitting contributions using the Guided Payroll Process through Empower

The Guided Payroll Process provides our administrators more flexibility to manage employee Empower accounts including the ability to update employee addresses, phone numbers, salary, etc. on a timely basis. In addition, it allows administrators to send contributions directly to employee accounts at Empower, meeting important compliance guidelines. The menu below provides helpful resources for our employers and churches as they use the Guided Payroll Process.
