The DOL has stated that they will be making “Rolling Updates” to their guidelines.  PayServ Systems, Inc. will be making every attempt to keep you abreast of this liquid situation and, of course, be your partner to help you through the implementation of your strategies.

Effective Date
  • 4-1-20 until 12-31-20 when the law expires.
