Pension Relief Information
Pension Relief Data Submission Guide: Exciting new changes are coming to the pension relief reporting process in January of 2023. INPRS is currently refining and updating the documentation for the Submission Guide and once it is available communication will be sent out. So, please be on the lookout for additional communication and instructions for this exciting new way!
However, the only format requirement that has changed is that zip codes are now “REQUIRED”. If this is not filled in when uploading the file, this will fail with validations. If you have a template you use every year, you can go ahead and update your template and fill those in to be prepared. More information to come!
Certified Salary Form: The PDF version of the Certified Salary Form is currently unavailable. INPRS is in the process of changing the format for how employers will submit the 2022 Certified Salary Form this year. Our Employer Advocate team will be reaching out to you with instructions on how to complete this new process as soon as it's available.
If you have any questions please contact us by phone, toll-free, at (888) 876-2707 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
