Year-End Checklist
October 16, 2018

Calendar year-end is almost here, and it’s time to say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019.  Even though it’s not as busy as fiscal year-end, it’s just as important to make sure all transactions and data updates are completed by the due date. In addition to the ongoing month end close, Integrated Statements for ERS Active Members will be prepared based on December 31, 2018 data.   Please review the list below for tasks and due dates:


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.
