Action:

  1. Access HMTU1.
  2. Enter R in the SUBCOMMAND field
  3. Enter the following fields as required:
    • AGENCY (KEY)
    • EMPLOYEE SSN (KEY)
    • EFF DATE (KEY)
    • INS SALARY (REQUIRED)
      Enter the calculated insurance salary amount. The system uses this field to calculate certain premiums and does not edit this field.
    • BENEFIT STATUS (REQUIRED)
      Enter Active (the employee's status).
    • TRANSACTION CODE (OPTIONAL)
      Enter SAL (insurance salary change).
  4. Press Enter to process the transaction.

Note: If a salary change occurs after the ERS Sept. 30 deadline, approval to change a salary must come from ERS. Once the approval process is complete,ERS corrects the insurance salary in ERS OnLine, and then the agency must correct the USPS insurance salary on HMTU1. These changes affect optional life, short term and long-term disability premium calculations.

Once an updated insurance salary is entered on HMTU1, recall the screen to verify that the disability and optional life premiums have been recalculated. A value of Y populates the UPD field on HMTU1. This updates HØZUC during the nightly cycle if the agency is in the current processing month or later than the effective dated record.

Adjustments to the September pay period may be required if the new insurance salary caused changes to any premiums.
