Employer Self Service Reporting

Payroll Filing

MainePERS requires employers to report employee payroll information on a monthly basis. The due date for employer payroll filings is the fifteenth day of the month following the payroll filing period being reported. Chapter 201 of the MainePERS Rules provides for interest to be assessed on delinquent payments. This due date applies to the Monthly Payroll Detail Filing, the Monthly Employer Remittance Report and the applicable payment. Checks should be made payable to the Maine Public Employees Retirement System and Identified with a Payment Identifier. Detailed descriptions of the reporting requirements for individual fields and applicable codes are described in the ESS Electronic Payroll Filing Manual posted in the ESS Guides section.
