Extend Your Payroll Schedules

Payroll Schedules will be meeting their end dates soon. Be sure to extend any active Payroll Schedules before their end dates so you will be able to upload your district’s contribution files without any issues.

If you need assistance, please contact Employer Services at 877-213-0861 or refer to the “eSERS How To” documents, How to: Extend a Payroll Schedule and the How To: Manage a Payroll Schedule for a Three-Week Pay Period.

Employer Responsibilities

As an employer of SERS’ members, you play an important role in reporting, recording, and maintaining accurate retirement information for these members.

Employers are responsible for creating member enrollments for all SERS members, reporting contribution detail for each member, submitting employee contributions, and processing all contributions that are allocated to the Employer Trust Fund, which covers all employer payments to SERS. These employer functions are accomplished through SERS’ secure Electronic reporting system (eSERS) website. Just click the Employer Account Login button above or below to get started.
