Data Change Request: Correct Increment Code

PayServ Manual


Data Changes are changes that relate to an employee's Job Data. These changes are separate from an employee's appointment, removal, position or pay rate change transactions. All Data Changes must be submitted through the request process.

This request will change or correct information needed for the automatic payment of certain payments. The fields that will be opened and can be entered in any combination as needed are the Increment Code, Anniversary Date, and FIS amount.

If the salary or pay rate must be changed at the same time, a Pay Change Request must be entered and these fields changed on that transaction.

Helpful Hints

  • All Data Change requests must be submitted on the Job Requests1 page.
  • The Action Reason automatically opens the required fields to process a Data Change transaction.
  • The transaction will never auto approve. All transactions will go to OSC staff for review.
