Q I went live on Monthly Data Collection (MDC) after May 2016 why would I need to provide backdated service?

Q How do I record service for an employee who is paid in arrears?

A

The salary needs to be recorded in the month that it's earned and all days excluded must be provided. When salary is known (usually the following month) an update service line must be provided showing the correct salary. This will replace the service line of all days excluded.
