UPB - Initiating a Prior Underpayment Adjustment (PUA) Fellowship

Initiating a Prior Underpayment Adjustment (PUA) Fellowship

The Department Initiator must submit a PUA with No Time Reported as the adjustment reason to pay a recurring fellowship for missed pay periods or underpayments because of a backdated job change.

NOTE: In order for an adjustment to pay correctly in some cases, you will need to adjust a pay period during which the job change is effective. This might not be the original incorrect pay event.

Payroll adjustments not related to the fellowship must be submitted on a separate transaction.
