MyTRS—Retiree insurance training session live via TEAMS, April 24

The MTRS is happy to announce that we will host a live retiree insurance training session via TEAMS for employers on Wednesday, April 24, from 1 – 2pm. We’ll specifically discuss the function we’ve restored to MyTRS allowing employers to enter your own rate changes, but all questions will be welcome.

MyTRS—Employers can add or edit plan rates

As announced in our April 1 email, employers now have access to change employer plan prices. Now that this functionality has been restored, please do not process changes without reading the instructions and/or reviewing our videos, or you might cause serious errors in your retirees’ deductions. We’re already seeing plans added with a final price of $.01, employers altering last year’s plan prices (creating false rebills for every retiree) and selecting plan options they don’t need. Below is a list of the chapters of our written guide to review prior to making changes.
