## (07) Retirement and Benefits Costs

Summary:

In this lesson, you'll show how to view Benefit Type, Benefit Object Code, and Benefit % information for personnel

Before You Begin

All of the values displayed on the (07)  Retirement and Benefits page are derived from information saved on finance servers. That means that all of it is read-only. When you request an employee's name from the (01) Salary and Wages line, SAGE  returns their full name and their sub-object code. The UW Sub-Object Code along with other financial information determines the benefit rate that SAGE will use for that employee.
