New member enrollments should be completed and submitted electronically via ERM. If there is insufficient information to process the online member enrollment, the transaction will generate errors in ERM and prompt the employer for additional information. New members must be  enrolled online prior to the first wage and contribution submission for that member. If no online enrollment exists, the submission will error out and will not be able to be processed until the enrollment is submitted. The member will receive notification of enrollment in the fund via mail and given instructions for submitting beneficiary information to the fund. See the Member Management User Manual available from the ERM Manuals page, for more information on enrolling members.

PERF requires completed online member enrollments for the following situations:

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

We do not require another completed member enrollment 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.
