Rules & Rulemaking

MainePERS is in the process of rulemaking on one rule.  A brief description of current rulemaking is as follows:

Chapter 201 – Employer Reporting and Payments

Chapter 201 – Employer Reporting and Payments (PDF)

This rule governs payroll reporting by employers.  The current rule has not been amended since it was adopted in 1985.  The proposed rule repeals and replaces the current rule.  The new proposed rule would set expectations for payroll reporting, submission of contributions, and payment of Group Life Insurance premiums and provide for late fees and interest.

A public hearing on the proposed amended rule is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. on May 9, 2024, in the MainePERS Board Room at 139 Capitol Street, Augusta, Maine.

The proposed amended rule may be viewed on this web site via the link above, or a copy may be obtained by contacting the Chief Executive Officer’s office at 1-800-451-9800 or by email at [email protected]

Written comments may be submitted at [email protected], or through regular U.S. mail at MainePERS, P.O. Box 349, Augusta, ME  04332-0349.  Written comments must be received no later than 4:00 p.m. on May 20, 2024.
