When investigating the discrepancy, if DEBS, EAB determines that other employees for
the same employer have possible inaccuracies posted to their earnings’ record and:
the wage report involves five employees or less, DEBS, EAB will correct each individual’s
earnings record via Item Correction (ICOR); or
the wage report involves more than five employees, DEBS, EAB will only make an adjustment
per current procedure to the earnings record of the NH of the inquiry received and
then refer the case to the Division of Earnings and Business Services,
DEBS, EAB prepares a Potential Blanket Adjustment (PBA) to notify DEBS that the wage
report requires a blanket adjustment.
The Center for Automation, Security & Integrity established a referral process in
the Earnings Control Workload System (ECWS) for the blanket adjustment referrals.
