What is the correct way to skip a pension payment, that might be paid-out later?
In that case during Processing you have to select 'Process later' for this pensioner. If you do so this pensioner will be removed from the open pay run, but you can process him/her again later.
If you choose 'Process as nil' during Processing you will not be able to process it later.
Also setting the employee status to 'inactive' is not the correct procedure. If later you change the pensioner status to 'active' again, it is not possible to process historical pay runs for this pensioner.
