RS 01405.020 Scouting or Feedback in Item Correction – Procedure

Requests for scouting and/or feedback should be made (but are not limited to) the following situations. Scouting or feedback requests should be as explicit as possible with regard to identifying characteristics (e.g. employer’s address, EIN, periods worked, etc.)

A. Wages paid prior to 1978

Before processing an E/R correction via ICOR:

Obtain feedback unless backpay under a statute is involved. (MSOM EM 016.001)

B. Wages paid after 1977

Request scouting for wages for years after 1977 for years that are within the Statute of Limitations for employer reports. (MSOM EM 016.001)

C. Wages paid in lag period

An earnings adjustment/correction for a lag period may only be processed via ICOR if the earnings have already been posted to the E/R.
