Access ERM

Beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, July 16, employers may access the ERM soft open environment.

To access ERM, visit

Take note of shutdowns

ERM will not be available for access on Monday, September 3, 2012.

As this is a state holiday, INPRS staff will not be available to assist employers. Access will be restored on the next business day.

Bank accounts in soft open

Bank accounts in the ERM soft open environment will be set up for each employer.

Bank account information will be "fake" and therefore pose no security risk. Once ERM goes live in October, employers will be required to set up bank accounts in ERM.

Ease into soft open

Need help with logging in, setting passwords, etc. for ERM's soft open?

The 'Getting Started in ERM - Employer User Quick Reference Guide,' available here, will brief you on everything you need to know to begin in soft open.

Known ERM "bugs"

Before you log into ERM's soft open environment, familiarize yourself with some known "bugs" and ways to resolve them.

The 'Soft Open Issues - Quick Reference Guide,' available here, discusses snags in the ERM application. We are working to fix these issues before go-live but wanted to provide employers a "cheat sheet" of how to get around these issues so they can make the most of soft open. Please contact us with any questions.

Backing up soft open

During the soft open period, we will be performing nightly production backups of the soft open environment so that in the case of a disaster event, we can restore to the previous evening's backup.
This will ensure that all data entered during soft open would not be lost. Instead, only information entered since the previous evening would be unavailable.
