Year-End Checklist

We are fast approaching fiscal year end and there are several transactions dependent upon complete and accurate data. These transactions include the interest update, the extract for the actuarial data, and legislative changes effective 7/1/2018. Please review the checklist below in an effort to reduce follow-up communication.


Rehired Retirees

Any employer (as defined in O.C.G.A 47 2-1.16) that employs a retired plan member must notify the Employees’ Retirement System (ERSGA) in writing within 30 days of the employee’s acceptance of employment. If the retired plan member performs more than 1,040 hours in any calendar year, the employer must also notify the board of trustees as soon as such information is available. Any employer that fails to notify ERSGA as required must reimburse the retirement system for any overpaid pension benefits.
