INAS Calculating Using Wrong Income Protection Allowance (IPA) When Number in College Same as Number in Family or Number in College >=5 (Doc ID 2735689.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 09, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When calculating INAS, the results are incorrect in some (not most) cases, with the problem traced to using the wrong income protection allowance (IPA) values for the particular number in family/number in college combination. The IPA combinations that aren't being incorporated correctly are 2/2, 3/3, 4/4, 5/5, and 6/5.  In these cases, INAS is using the IPA value for the indicated number in family, and 1 in college.

The other IPA values, besides those noted above, are being used correctly. Examples of the behavior are noted on the current PUM 19/Bundle 59 code, when calculating for aid year 2022, and after applying the extra fix to address the previous IPA issue documented in <Note 2717711.1>. However, the problem is likely not specific to any one aid year. 

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Identify a student in the aid year where the parent (or student, if Independent) number in family/college is one of the combinations listed above. 
  2. Navigate to Financial Aid > Federal Application Data > Correct 20nn-20nn ISIR records for this student. 
  3. Insert a new row if needed.
  4. Make changes to one or more INAS-related data elements.
  5. Calculate INAS
