Membership records should be completed and submit­ted via ERM. If there is insufficient information to process the membership record, the transaction will generate errors and prompt the employer for additional information. New membership records must be submitted to PERF prior to the first wage and contribution submission for that member. If no membership record exists, the submission will error out and will not be able to be processed until the record is submitted. The member will receive notification of enroll­ment in the fund and given instructions for submitting beneficiary information to the fund. See the Member Management User Manual, available at, for more information.

PERF requires completed Membership Records for the following situations:

  • New employees
  • Re-employments
  • Change of employment from one PERF-covered employer to another

We do not require another completed Membership Record when an employee is changing from one position to another (i.e. promotion) with the same employer or agency as long as both positions are PERF-covered.
