Retroactive Wages: used to report an active member who has received a retroactive payment. (PA 54 prohibits the payments of retroactive wages for labor contracts that have expired. Consequently, ORS no longer expects retroactive pay adjustments for settled contracts after June 8, 2011.) Retroactive payments can be reported as lump sums for a period that spans up to but not exceeding one fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). ORS will evenly distribute the amount reported with a wage code 04 between each pay period within the begin and end dates designated. When reporting retroactive payments as a lump sum, the record’s begin and end dates should be the beginning and ending dates of the period for which the payments may be evenly distributed.
