DI 52155: Initial Claims with Workers' Compensation/Public Disability Benefit (WC/PDB)
A101 processing limitations may require using the Electronic Form 101 (EF101) to process claims. The EF101 is also used to process amended awards which could involve WC/PDB offset.
A. Preparing the WC/PDB offset calculation
Data from MCS or A101 will not propagate into the EF101.
Before starting the EF101 complete the WC/PDB offset determination in the T2 Interactive Computation Facility (ICF) #32WC/PDB: ADJUDICATE CLAIM or #34 WC/PDB: ONLINE RECORD ENTRY. For detailed instructions, see DI 52155.025B.

If the Type of Action Code on the Account Data screen (EFACCT) entered is D (disability) the two WC/PDB questions at the bottom of that screen must be completed.
WC/PDB INVOLVED (Y/N) should be answered Y for all initial or subsequent claims or amended awards when WC/PDB data coding is required.
WC/PDB Common screens have been completed and the data needs to be posted to the MBR.
WC/PDB offset is involved.
WC/PDB OFFSET DATA ON ICF (Y/N) should be answered Y when ICF #32 or #34 have been used to adjudicate an offset determination.
The Benefit Authorizer/Benefit Technical Examiner (BA/BTE) can access the WC/PDB data in ICF and propagate it into the MACADE action.
