Updated: March 3, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

For all workers: Click Payroll > Inquiries > Benefit accrual transactions.


For a selected worker: Click Human resources > Common > Workers > Workers. Select a worker, click Personal information, and then click Benefit accruals. On the Benefit accruals form, click Plan transactions.

You can use the Benefit accrual balances form to view accrual plan balances and accrual transactions for workers. Transactions are created only when pay statements are submitted or when manual adjustments to plan balances are made from the Benefit accruals form. There are no transactions for pending usage, which represents the hours that are in earning statement lines that have not been included in a pay statement that has been submitted for payment.


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