New Employer’s Guide to Utah Retirement Systems

We are excited to introduce the web edition of the Employer’s Guide to Utah Retirement Systems (Guide). The online Guide contains all of the great information previously offered in the print version of the Guide and will be kept current through quarterly updates. The web nature of the new Guide allows for easier navigation, searching, bookmarking, and more. We hope the new design will enhance your learning experience and that you will continue to use this tool to further your knowledge of Utah Retirement System’s policies and procedures.

You can find the online Guide inside the Publications tab in the Employers section of the URS’s website or by following this link: https://www.urs.org/EmployerGuide/.

2016 Employer Event

Excel file available to upload directly into your payroll system

We no longer distribute paper copies of the Deferral Changes Report. This is the report we send out each week listing employees who have savings plan deferrals, loan installments, and contribution changes.

It’s vitally important that these changes get input into your payroll system accurately to ensure that your employees’ paychecks are correct. Because we no longer provide this report through the mail, we provide you with digital copies.

We send an email reminder each Monday letting you know when this digital report is available. To access the report, log into URS for Employers and click on Deferral Changes Report under the Reports menu on the left. Two files are available for each time frame. The first file is a PDF copy of the report that you previously received by mail. The second is an Excel file.

This Excel file allows you to upload changes directly into your payroll system. You may initially need to work with your IT department to implement these changes. We hope this report saves you time and money, and helps you avoid data entry problems.
Please contact your Employer Support Technician at 801-366-7318 or 800-753-7318 with any questions.
