It is important to remit all payments promptly and accurately. If an organization is remitting payments for more than one employer, separate remittance documents need to be entered for each separate employer.
Payment Remittance information for all payments, including employee and employer contributions, SCP Payroll Deductions, Surcharge, etc., must be entered electronically through eSERS. The remittance provides the employer with a record of payments and insures the proper allocation of the payments to the correct SERS accounts.
This can only be completed in eSERS.
Please refer to the eSERS Guide for further information on completing the Payment Remittance.
Forms of Payment
As the preferred method to remit payments, ACH Debit is an electronic funds transfer initiated in eSERS through the Payment Remittance application indicating the date and amount to be withdrawn from the employer’s designated account.
