Have you ever submitted multiple future termination dates for the same member on separate Wage and Contribution files? Did you know that the most recent termination date submitted is the one used in ERM?
On May 1, you submit a Last Day in Pay and Last Check Date of May 15 for a member on a Wage and Contribution file upload.
On May 2, you submit a Last Day in Pay and Last Check Date of May 30 for the same member on a Wage and Contribution file upload.
The Last Day in Pay and Last Check Date submitted on May 2 will be the termination information used in ERM.
If a member’s retirement date is May 1, you need to submit the member’s last day in pay as April 30 if that is truly the last day he or she earned wages.
As defined in INPRS’ ERM Manuals, the last day in pay is the last day an employee accrued or earned a wage (i.e., termination date) as a covered or non-covered employee. This date should be reported no later than when an employee has completely separated from employment. A retirement cannot be processed until the employee has completely separated from employment and a last day in pay has been reported.
