Transmittal Report Technical Requirements
MRL - Summary Record
Summary Record Use
Record type ID: S
The summary record as shown below must be part of every transmittal report to DRS, but do not include Summary Record in the Total Records Reported field. You can send one file with multiple transmittal reports but each transmittal report must have a summary record. The reporting group number is the data element within the summary record that distinguishes one transmittal report from another. Some employers have more than one reporting group number; i.e., a city has a reporting group number for the Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS), a reporting group number for the Law Enforcement Officers' & Fire Fighters' Retirement System (LEOFF) and a reporting group number for the Public Safety Employees' Retirement System (PSERS). If you have employees who participate in the DCP, you will have a fourth reporting group number.
