The multi period calculator is the primary support tool for all incapacity calculations. It is mandatory for all payments to be calculated using the Incapacity Calculator. This is designed to ensure that a consistent approach is taken in application of MRCC policy and SRCA requirements in managing this particular benefit.

The calculator also provides a record of all payments made including the first 45 weeks of incapacity for the purposes of S19(2) of the SRC Act.

The Defcare User Manual, Section 8.2 provides more specific information.
