Employer Update: October 2017

A huge thank you is extended for completing our employer survey. We appreciate your feedback and use it to make improvements to better serve you.

An example of your feedback resulting in improvements is the recent update to our Missing Member Report. An employer suggested that the last four digits of member Social Security numbers (SSNs) be added to the report. Adding the last four digits of a member's SSN will assist employers in identifying members with missing information. This update will help make the Missing Member Report more useful and reduce the number of inquiries requesting last day in pay (LDIP) information.

More details have been added in ERM as noted in last month’s Employer Update.

Update on reporting payroll in ERM

Two new code validations are now available for payroll frequencies reporting in ERM. You may receive one of the error messages below if you have gaps in reporting wages and contributions in ERM.

  • M-93 – Pay period start and end dates do not match the payroll calendar frequency selected.
  • M-91 – Pay period end date cannot be prior to the pay period start date.

For example, bi-weekly payroll frequencies must be 14 days from pay period start date to pay period end date on every report in ERM.

If you have any questions, please contact EPPA at (888) 876-2707 or at eppa@inprs.in.gov.
