Overview

Our Employer Estimates (EST) application allows you to view your 2019 annual estimate online, in a secure area of our website, at any time. If any calculations or details require adjusting, the revised estimate will be made available online the next business day. Your annual invoice will be available online in November.

What You Need to Do

To see your estimate, log on to your online programs. You will need internet access and a computer running either Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS. We test our applications in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) versions 9 and 10. If you use an earlier version, you may not be able to access this application or the application may not function properly. If you have trouble with IE, or your information doesn’t seem to display properly, try using Google Chrome. Learn more about Google Chrome, or download it for your computer.

Once you log on, you will be able to access any of the applications you have authorization to use. You must have a username and password to enter. If you do not have a username and password, email the Employer Billing Unit or contact the unit by phone at 518-408-4214 or 518-486-3921.

You Should Know

Legislation requires that we bill employers based on actual salaries from the last completed fiscal year (as shown on the Salary Listing application).

Your estimate is based on actual salaries from the State fiscal year ending March 31, 2018. Any salary adjustments that were made after April 19, 2018 will not be included in the Prior Years’ Adjustments shown on the 2019 estimate.

The amounts provided are for the payment due date of February 1, 2019 and the optional pre-payment date of December 15, 2018. Please note that December 15, 2018 falls on a Saturday. Payments made electronically or sent by certified mail, on or before December 17, 2018, will be considered on time.

The “divide by factor” represents the 45 days of interest that are discounted when you pay your annual invoice December 15 instead of February 1. This factor changes with the interest rate.

For Help with Your Estimate

If you disagree with your estimate or don’t see all of the location codes that you should have access to, contact the Employer Billing unit at 518-408-4214 or 518-486-3921.
