Getting started in ERM…your quick reference

The Getting Started in ERM Quick Reference Guide, available here, will provide you with the information you’ll need to begin using ERM. Contact EPPA at (888) 876-2707 with any additional questions.

ERM dates to remember

Keep aware of these important dates and responsibilities for a smooth transition. 

  • NOW until Oct. 15: submit an error-free 3rd quarter wage and contribution report and payment using your current reporting process and have it converted to ERM automatically. Missing the Oct. 15 deadline will require employers to enter their payroll data going back to July, in payroll order, starting Oct. 29.
  • Oct. 1: ERM went live.
  • Oct. 1 – Oct. 19: Add bank accounts, confirm payroll dates and add users ONLY. Do not submit member or wage and contribution information using ERM.
  • Oct. 20 – Oct. 28: ERM will be shut down to convert 3rd quarter wage and contribution data.
  • Oct. 29: ERM will be fully functional. Employers will start enrolling new members and submitting wage and contribution data that occurred from Oct. 1-29, in chronological order.

For example, you have a bi-weekly payroll frequency with payroll dates on Oct. 5 and Oct. 19. Beginning Oct. 29, you would submit your Oct. 5 payroll, resolve any errors, and then submit payment. You would then submit your Oct. 19 payroll, resolve any errors, and submit payment. You will then begin submitting on your scheduled payroll dates.

  • All current members will be converted to ERM and will not need to be re-enrolled. Only members hired after Oct. 1, 2012 will need to be enrolled using ERM.
