Sensitive personal information is displayed in this form. Be sure to set up security permissions for this form in a way that does not put your workers’ personal information at risk.

Arrears are recovered only if the Recover arrears check box in the Benefit elements form is selected for the benefit plan.

You must adjust the amount in arrears manually in the following situations:

  • When you reverse a pay statement that created or recovered an arrearage.

  • When a worker repays an arrearage outside of the payroll system.

  • When you choose to forgive an arrearage amount.

When you delete or modify pay statements, the amounts in arrears are automatically adjusted as necessary.


This topic describes functionality that is available only if Payroll for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is installed.
