FFCRA Support

Tech Support for Pulling FFCRA Data

To all Bridgeware clients,

If you will be offering the extended FFCRA payments under the American Rescue Act Plan of 2021 we have created JobStreams to help you clear and reset your totals for Quarantine Days. We have also updated our QTRLY program for extending FFCRA processing to September 30th, 2021.

The American Rescue Act Plan of 2021 extends an employers eligibility for tax credits beyond the March 31 cutoff through September 30th, 2021. While FFCRA payments are no longer required, this Act extends the option for applicable employers to offer those mentioned FFCRA payments to eligible employees.

Here are some links that we found to be helpful:

The mentioned JobStreams can be obtained by contacting support while the QTRLY.exe can be retrieved with standard software updates.

If you need any assistance with any of this information, please contact support.
