Deadline for finalizing 2020 reports is April 16, 2021

The deadline for finalizing the 2020 MTRS deduction reports is Friday, April 16, 2021. This year’s deadline is later than previous years to account for delays due to the ongoing pandemic. However, by statute, each monthly deduction report is due by the 10th of the following month, so any 2020 reports that are not yet Released are late.

As we continue to work with employers to process their Pending reports, we will be contacting Superintendents of severely delinquent employers.

How do I check my employer’s deduction report status and what do I need to do?

To check your employer’s status, log into MyTRS, click Deductions Reports and Payments, and then change the reporting status to All.

  • If all your 2020 deduction reports are in Released status, no further action is needed. Congratulations and thank you for submitting on-time!
  • If all your unreleased 2020 deduction reports are in Pending status, no further action is needed, unless your MTRS Employer Service Representative (ESR) contacts you with questions regarding your pending reports.
  • If you have any 2020 reports in Initial status, they require immediate attention and need to be completed and submitted to Pending status forthwith.
  • If you have 2020 reports that have not yet been imported into MyTRS, they require immediate attention and must be imported, processed and submitted to Pending status forthwith.

For assistance with reporting questions, see our library of written and video training guides. If you cannot locate your answer in our materials, contact your ESR with questions or to set up an appointment.

We will continue to communicate with all employers on a regular basis to help you meet the April 16th deadline, which is critical for the timely production of your employees’ Annual Account Statements as well as the reporting requirements of the state actuary.

This is a team effort, so please do not hesitate to contact your employer’s assigned Employer Services Representative, or Robert George, Director of Employer Services, at 617-679-6869 or if you have any questions.
