Greetings from LSERS

Welcome to the March Edition of LSERS Employer eNews, we would like to wish you a happy and safe Mardi Gras. Enclosed in this issue is information regarding 100% Accrual adjustments and the 2019 Employer Training. I encourage you to contact our knowledgeable staff to assist you with any questions or concerns.

-Charles P. Bujol

100% Accrual

Please remember: current year adjustments are easier to be processed than Prior Year Corrections (PYCs).  If you expect one of your members to attain 100% accrual within the current fiscal year and you’ve not heard from LSERS, please contact us to research.  Meanwhile, to prevent further confusion and unnecessary corrections, please do NOT stop reporting the salary contributions until the 100% accrual date is confirmed.  

Questions? Contact Heidi Guillot at 225.287.7495 or hguillot@lsers.net.

Online "Member Status Report" Empowers Reporting Agencies

Frequently, our employers and LSERS need retirement membership census data for a variety of reasons.  The online report “Member Status Report by Employer” provides an abundance of information! This report allows the user to see all members who were under a specific status during a given time period entered by the user. We recently added a new column titled “Status End Date” to assist in clarifying status data.  If you have any feedback or need assistance in using this report, please contact Michelle Bridges at 225.925.6718 or mbridges@lsers.net.

Holiday Office Closure

Our office will be closed on the following Holiday:
Tuesday, March 5, 2019 – Mardi Gras

And, as always, we appreciate and welcome any and all comments, as this helps
us identify ways to make improvements for you and provide better service to our
members and employers. Feel free to provide feedback and suggestions using
the LSERS Satisfaction Survey on our "Contact Us" page on the LSERS website.
