  • Employer Guide to Certifying Leave to PERS

    MyPERS Reporting is a secure online tool designed to allow PERS-covered employers to: Load reporting data; modify reporting data to correct errors; submit files electronically to PERS; manage training requests for PERS on the Move sessions; maintain contact information; evaluate new employees for membership using the Eligibility Questionnaire; and make and review payments to PERS for contributions and penalties to create and transmit retirement wage and contribution records to PERS. The MyPERS Reporting manual provides employers with helpful information about the reporting tool.

Determining a Member's Eligibility

PERS-covered employers are responsible for properly assessing whether an employee is eligible for membership in PERS. However, PERS has provided a convenient questionnaire in MyPERS Reporting to help in this determination. Employers are also encouraged to reference PERS Board Regulation 36, Eligibility for Membership in the Public Employees' Retirement System of Mississippi (PERS), and PERS Board Regulation 37, Eligibility of Student Employees for Membership in Retirement Annuity Coverage.
