Retirement Online for Employers

Retirement Online for employers is a suite of web-based applications that will make working with the Retirement System easier and more convenient. For now, you should continue to use all of your current reporting applications, such as Retirement Internet Reporting (RIR) and Retirement Adjustment Reporting (RAR), to conduct your day-to-day reporting business. In 2018, employers will begin using Retirement Online for many important reporting transactions and benefit administration functions. Visit the Getting Started section of our website to find information for both Local and Municipal, and State employers.

New Legislation: Overtime Limit for Tier 6 Members

The amount of overtime that can be reported for Tier 6 members is limited. Recent legislation has changed how the overtime limits are determined. Beginning January 1, 2018, employers will report Tier 6 overtime based on the calendar year rather than the fiscal year. The limit will increase annually, and will be based on the increase in the Consumer Price Index during the one-year period that ends the previous September 30. Visit our Overtime Limits for Tier 6 page for more information.

Heads Up

Your annual invoice is available online. If you choose to pay the discounted amount, your payment must be received on or before December 15, 2017; otherwise the full amount of your invoice will be due on February 1, 2018. You can read our Invoice Overview page if you have questions.
