The Item Correction (ICOR) process of the Earnings Modernization (EM) system processes
adjustments to an individual's earnings record. ICOR provides several wage and SEI
determination screens for justification of the earnings action taken.
You may request the appropriate determination screen, or depending on the “Basis for
Change” code, it automatically propagates. Certain “Basis for Change” codes require
a determination and if selected, it automatically propagates the appropriate determination
screens. If more than, one issue is involved in the earnings adjustment (e.g., an
employer or employee relationship or coverage issue and an earnings adjustment), discuss
each issue with the claimant and document the justification. However, be aware that
only one determination screen propagates to address all pertinent issues. For more
information about ICOR screens, see MSOM EM 019.001 thru MSOM EM 031.001.
If you determined that there is no need to adjust the earnings record, prepare the
special determination as instructed in GN 01010.360B.2 to explain the reason for no adjustment.
