  1. I realized that the Housing/Rental Allowance is not pro-rated?

  2. Is there a reason why some Allowances pay items not be pro-rated?

  3. Could you please identify which allowances pay items are subject to pro-rata adjustment, and which ones aren't?

  1. Allowances

Not auto-prorated (default setting):

  1. Housing/Rental Allowance

  2. Meal Allowance

  3. Extra Duty Allowance

  4. Incentive Allowance

* and other allowance-related pay items.
