If an EARQ alert requires resolution and review of the ER with the claimant or representative
results in no corrective action, then:
a. Obtain a statement from the claimant or representative explaining and identifying
the years in question. For documentation, see RS 01404.110E.5.
EXAMPLE: My ER is correct for 2007. I did not work in 2007 due to the birth of my child in
12/06. I did not work for 18 months from 12/06 through 05/08.
b. Document the file when the claimant cannot explain the work history per RS 0104.110E.5
Enter a remark that we informed the claimant of the possible erroneous posting due
to claimant lack of explanation.
c. If the claimant questions the ER but no development is necessary per RS 01404.110B:
Explain to the claimant why no corrective is necessary; and
Annotate the file “We reviewed the EARQ alert for YYYY wages and state why no action was taken
EXAMPLE: We reviewed the EARQ alert with the claimant for 1986 wages; Development not necessary (the time limitation for correction has expired).
