EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

allowances should not be reported on a Death Termination


STEPS TO REPRODUCE

(3) View SOE > Notice everything is fine & correct

   > Gross Payments = 15
   > Total Allowances = -14
!!! PROBLEM !!!
EXPECTING NOTHING to be reported under Allowances and Gross Payments
These figures do not match the element entries either.

(6) Generate: End of Year Reconciliation Summary report
