Chapter 8: Transmittal Reporting
Transmittal Report Technical Requirements
This section provides employers with information about how to report retirement members and deferred compensation participants to DRS using an electronic format. DRS can accept several reporting media options. The information in this section will help employers decide the best way for them to report retirement information and DCP deferral information to DRS.
This section describes:
- the multiple record layout
- the automated reporting media DRS accepts and the file format options associated with this media;
- specific step by step information employers must follow to start using one of the automated reporting media accepted by DRS (See WBET or SFT sign-up instructions); and
- each field described/identified by record type for MRL.
If you change your reporting method, please contact ESS to arrange for a test of the new method before submitting a regular transmittal report via the new method.
