Your One Stop Shop for All Things ERM

To prepare employers for the launch of ERM, INPRS has launched a Web site to house all ERM information in one convenient place.

On this site, you will find general ERM info, FAQs, timelines, all ERM-related employer communications and file layouts. And, as information becomes available, we will post it to this site. We encourage employers to visit it often.

Further, this site offers a forum where employers can post questions, share ERM tips, etc. INPRS will monitor this forum and provide answers to questions you may have. The forum is for registered users only. INPRS will ensure all registrants are associated with one of our participating employers. Please register for this site today to make sure you’re caught up with all essential ERM information!

The site is available at

Conference answers payroll questions

Do you or your payroll vendor have questions about the new file layout required for reporting Wages and Contributions in ERM? Attend a free conference in December for more information.
INPRS will host two conferences devoted to the Wage and Contribution file you received in June. You and/or your payroll vendor will receive information on the design and usage of the Wage and Contribution file in ERM. Additionally, we’ll be available to answer your questions about the file itself and any associated fields.

Conferences will be held on December 6, 2011 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time or on December 8, 2011 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time. Attendees may choose to attend on site at our downtown Indianapolis location or via webinar. Please forward this invite to your payroll vendor or other internal payroll staff. Again, all relevant parties may attend.

Registration information will be sent later this month. We are also requesting questions be submitted in advance so we can provide the best information possible.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you transition as smoothly as possible into ERM.

Submit New Membership Records Online for PERF and TRF

As a reminder, membership records must be submitted electronically via PERF Online/TRF Interactive. For PERF only, you may submit member records one at a time or use the bulk upload feature.

Additionally, because all membership records must be submitted electronically, there is no need to fill out a paper membership record and any paper membership records received will not be processed.

Remember, the electronic membership record does not include an employee’s beneficiary information. Once new members are enrolled, they will receive a welcome packet that will provide login information, new member Pension ID (PID) and passcode. Members are encouraged to view their account information, update investment options and establish a beneficiary.

Dates for Upcoming Member Communication

Daily: Letters will be mailed to members who defaulted to the appropriate target date fund and have not made a subsequent investment election within 60 days after being added to the recordkeeping system (ongoing).

Late October/Early November: Quarterly Member Statements were mailed to PERF and TRF members.
