Dear School District Superintendents, Charter School and Education Collaborative Directors, Business Managers, Town Treasurers, Personnel Administrators and Payroll Officers,

Please note these two timely updates:

1) The deadline for finalizing all calendar year 2015 deduction reports was Friday, March 11, 2016.

At this time, 384 school districts have submitted all calendar year 2015 deduction reports, and just 4% of last year’s reports remain outstanding or awaiting final review by our staff. To all districts that worked to complete their reporting by the deadline, thank you; to those that are delinquent, please know that we will continue notifying your superintendents and administrators that your calendar year 2015 reports are outstanding and that you need to complete them. As we have mentioned before, this is a team effort so please don’t hesitate to notify us if we can be of any assistance.

2) For your security, please remember to notify the MTRS when your staff members transition to another position within your district or leave employment.

Additionally, periodically check your employer contacts in MyTRS to ensure that former employees are not listed. If a former employee is still in your contacts, he or she may still have access to your data in MyTRS and pose a security risk for your personally identifiable information (PII). To have a former employee removed from your contacts, simply e-mail your designated Employer Services Representative and we will remove them immediately.
