Monthly Contributions Reconciliation (MCR) contributions calculations

We’ve received a few questions regarding contribution calculation methods, which have been regarding ‘When Paid’ and ‘When Earned’ calculations.

There are two types of calculation that can be used when developing your MCR submission, which are;

  1. When Paid – this is the default method that you’d use when calculating monthly contributions for members, no indicators are required for this method
  2. When Earned – this is the method you’d use to calculate refunds, or when making a payment to a member in a pay month after the one in which the member left employment. If completing a ‘When Earned’ calculation you must select the indicator ‘WE’ in the calculation method for the contribution tier field.

Full details of when to use the ‘When Earned’ calculation are in the guidance notes and to help we’ve also put together some further information.
