This information should be entered in ERM immediately preceding the termination. The date of the employee’s last pay check, which may be prior to his or her termination date, should be entered as the LCD. Termination life events in ERM should be used when an employee:

Throughout the year, INPRS conducts satisfaction surveys of active and retired members, those who have contacted our call center and recently retired members.
