Payroll Reporting Validations

New payroll reporting validations have been implemented in myCalPERS:

  • Reporting of excess service credit within an earned period
  • Reporting of excess special compensation within an earned period

In the event the above occurs, the following error messages will display:

  • The calculated value of time worked exceeds the maximum limits defined by CalPERS. (CRB00358)
  • Special compensation amount exceeds the allowable limit for [special compensation type]. (CRB00357)

For both new validations, when thresholds are met, records will error and not post until the error is resolved.
