2021 Enhancements to the Retirement Notification Process
In an effort to better serve our employers with planning for the busy retirement season, we have made a change to the monthly retirement notification listing that is emailed on the first day of the month.
This notification will now include retirements for the current month, as well as any retirement applications we have received for the following month.
As always, we ask that you not complete the Final Six Months’ Salary Report until you can accurately certify your employees' final pay. This helps to ensure an accurate calculation of retirement benefit payments.
Please contact your Employer Representative with any questions or concerns you may have.
