 Accrual plan term is calendar year(1/1 to 31/12), accrual method is front loaded(Only one accrual for the entire plan term) and repeating period is Monthly(12 Period for the entire plan term).

We all know in the above case irrespective of repeating period the accrual will be given to the employee only once in the entire plan term (First Day of the plan term itself)because the accrual method is Front Loaded.

Client requirement:


As per the above setup first period accrual has run, balance calculation date is 31/1/xxxx and accrual has been awarded to the employee “12”.

Due to change in Company Policy employer decided to give “15” instead of “12”.

Now the setup in the accrual plan changed to 15 instead of 12 as per the new requirement.

Customer runs the accrual on or after 31/1/xxxx but accrual still shows as 12 instead of 15, why ?

This is the system behavior, since the accrual method is front loaded (Accrual will be awarded only once during this plan term)and already the accrual has been awarded to the employee (in the first monthly run 31/1/xxxx) hence system will not consider to give accrual again with changes on Second monthly run (28/02/xxxx).

Note: Balance calculation date will get changed to 28/2/xxxx but changed accrual rate of 15 is not awarded still system shows the 12 accrual value.

Then how to achieve the client requirement ?
