Starting Retirement Allowance Payroll


Starting the payroll run calls up a country-specific payroll driver which performs a complete retirement allowance payroll run for the selected employees, using the settings in a country-specific schema.


  1. Select Retire. allowance ® Start payroll.
  2. You do not make an entry in the Pay period field (payroll area/PP/YYYY) for the retirement allowance payroll. In the Off-cycle payroll, it does not make sense to specify the payroll accounting area, which indicates the accounting period. Use the field Payment day instead.

  3. In the field Personnel number, enter an individual personnel number or range of personnel numbers.
  4. In the field Payroll accounting area, enter an individual payroll area or range of payroll areas.
  5. If you make an entry in both the Personnel number and the Payroll accounting area fields, only the employees that match the values in both fields are selected. Enhanced selection options are available for the fields Personnel number and Payroll accounting area. See the description of the standard selection screen.

  6. Field Special Run should be used only with Off-Cycle payroll accounting.

– In the first field specify A (any other value is not currently supported).

– In the third field, enter the Payment day.

The field Retroactive accounting date is not used in the retirement allowance payroll run.

  1. Select Program ® Execute. A log is displayed when the retirement allowance payroll run is complete.
  2. Use the log to check that the results of the retirement allowance payroll run are correct and that employees were not rejected.

If personnel numbers are rejected or not selected, do not exit the payroll program. Instead, you must check the payroll results and correct master data and time data for the appropriate personnel numbers where necessary.


The retirement allowance payroll is started.
