Adjusting the RPO's claim

Last updated:

    Overview

    It is often the case that the RPO’s claim will not agree with the figures calculated by the system.  You may amend the individual details if you need to adjust the RPO’s claim to take account of any discrepancy between the calculated claim and the RPO’s proof claim.

    Adjusting the RPO's claim

    1.    Open the RPO’s claim and select the ERA Tab.

    Note

    Any adjustments you make here will be checked against the RPO’s claim and, if there is a difference between the advised claim and the recalculated claim, you will not be allowed to exit the screen.  You will only be allowed to cancel without saving any changes you have made.

    4.    You may also adjust the RPO’s claim by right-clicking the employee’s claim in the Claim Detail tab and selecting Adjust RPO payments:
