New PERS Report for Agencies – Posted 10/03/2017
A PERS report has been developed to allow each agency to receive a list of their employees whose previous month’s adjustments were paid for pay periods greater than 18 months in the past. These transactions should be manually reported to PERS on their “Form 10, Report of Adjustments,” which is to be completed by the agency and sent to PERS. The report, “Adjustment Greater Than 18 Months,” for the previous month’s transactions will be available in FMVIEW on the second working day of each month if you have someone with adjustments that old. The Report ID is PH3400L-AGY#.
