This field allows the user to select the EC screens that display Claim Data that will
be displayed in the MCS EC path. These screens provide data that is displayed on an
individual claimant basis. Screens displaying WC/PDB information can be seen by selecting
#1 or #4 in the Claim Display field of the MCR1/MCR2 screen.
The WRBD screen provides claimant results data for the offset determination.
The amount the benefit is being reduced for WC offset is displayed in the WC ONLY
If PDB offset is also involved, the total offset for both WC and PDB are displayed
in the COMBINED OFFSET column.
Displays the benefit amount due the claimant after WC/PDB offset.
The DBPH screen reflects what will appear in the HISTORY field of the MBR when the
claim is processed through EC.
When the monthly benefit amount (MBA) is totally offset due to WC/PDB the full MBA
will be reflected and the SUSTRM REASON WCOFFS will be shown.
The benefit amount after offset is reflected in the MBA field when partial offset
IMPORTANT: Review the offset computation results prior to triggering the claim. If the displayed
results are questionable or obviously incorrect, do not process the claim via MCS
EC. Instead, do the offset computation in ICF #32 and prepare an A101. For A101 instructions,
see DI 52155.025
The result of the WC/PDB offset processed in MCS EC is available for later use in
the Workers' Compensation/Public Disability Benefit Data screens used by ICF by selecting
#31, 32, 33 and 34 on IC00 (Title II Benefit Computation Menu).
