Why are my ROE totals not balanced?

Why are my ROE totals not balanced?

Block 15B (total insurable earnings) looks like it should be calculated the same way as the total insurable hours (Block 15A) next to it. The total insurable hours represent a full year plus one pay period, which means it is a sum of all the values in that column.

However, Block 15B is actually the total insurable earnings of half of the year plus one pay period. This will not equal to all of the values in that column, which is ok!
