Chapter 9: Transmittal Edit Reports
Using the Transmittal Correction Report
When to Use the Correction Report
When you discover an error, you can submit a correcting transaction on your regular monthly transmittal, or you can submit a correcting transaction at any time of the month using a transmittal correction report. A correction report provides you with the flexibility to correct errors quickly and to respond promptly to rejected transactions. It is important to re-report rejected transactions as soon as possible. This assists in getting the information posted to the member's account in a timely manner.
Correction reports can be submitted by any transmittal reporting method. You do not have to submit corrections using the same method as your regular report. If you send your regular report by diskette, you can submit a correction report using Web Based Employer Transmittals (WBET) via the Internet.
The report period DRS assigns to your correction report will be the same as the last regular report that has been processed. The report period assigned by DRS is used to identify your correction on edit reports and on your Statement of Account Activity.
If you owe contributions because of transactions on your correction report, you must also send the payment with a Payment Advice form to DRS.
If DRS finds errors on your correction report, you will receive an edit report from DRS, just as you would with any other transmittal report.
