Define Upper and Lower Threshold for Supplementary Percentage Rates

In the Semiretirement infotype (0521), you can specify the percentages for supplement 1 , PI supplement, and minimum net amount for each employee. These percentages override the data stored in Customizing when you set up the semiretirement model.

In this step, you define the upper and lower limit of the percentage rates in the Semiretirement infotype (0521) for manual entry. If the threshold values are not met or are exceeded, the system displays a warning.
For each percentage rate (supplement 1, minimum net amount, PI supplement), you enter a percentage rate for the upper threshold and a percentage rate for the lower threshold as a constant. You also maintain feature DAT02 (Set threshold values).


The percentage rate for supplement 1 should only be betwen 20% and 30%. In the Semiretirement infotype (0521), you want to display a warning if an entry exceeds or falls below these thresholds.

Standard Settings

In the standard system, feature DAT02 has initial values (blank). If you copy this presetting, the upper and lower thresholds stored in the coding are used. The lower thresholds correspond to the statutory percentage rates, the upper thresholds are 100%.


1. Consider whether you want to use the presettings. If so, no action is required. If you do not want to use them, you must create constants and maintain feature DAT02.
2. Create constants
a) Create at least one constant with a percentage rate for the upper threshold and a constant with a percentage rate for the upper threshold for supplement 1, the PI supplement and the minimum net amount.
3. Maintain feature DAT02
a) Enter the created constants for the lower and upper threshold percentage rates in the feature structure.
