Reminder: Severance Pay
Severance pay is a type of leave pay. Due to multiple questions, it was found that leave pay and severance pay information was split into multiple references. Therefore, severance pay with keying instructions has been added to the leave pay types.
 
For CA, leave pay received as an installment or lump sum, after the participant has terminated employment is countable. Key the leave pay on EAIN using the LT Earned Income Type Code.
 
For NA, leave pay received as either of the following, after the participant has terminated employment, is not countable as earned income:
 
In installments key the LE FS Unearned Income Code in the INC TYP field on UNIC.
A lump sum payment, key the LS Lump Sum Code in the TYP field on LIAS.
 
For more information see the following:
 
FAA4.H03CC Leave Pay from Terminated Employment
