Recent Late Reporting Issues
PERS is seeing an increase in late reporting issues that can be prevented. PERS would like to remind employers that their regular reports should contain wage and service records that have pay dates from the date of the last regular report to the date of the current report. 
For example, a semi-monthly reporter (in which regular reports are due on the 15th and last day of each month) will create a regular report on the 15th of the month that contains DTL-2 records for pay dates between the first and 15th of that month – and the regular report on the last date of the month should contain DTL-2 records for pay dates from the 16th to the last date of that month. 
Example:  Semi-monthly employer reporting a month with 31 days

Regular report
15th of the month
Regular report
31st of the month
Regular reports must be submitted to PERS within three business days of their corresponding report date. Please note that regular reports must be successfully released in EDX to be deemed as submitted.
PERS would also like to remind employers that four different report frequencies are available for them to submit regular reports:
1. Monthly - the pay period ends on the last day of the month.
2. Semi-monthly - the pay period ends on the 15th of the month and the last day of the month.
3. Weekly - the pay period ends Friday of every week, beginning January 2, 2004.
4. Bi-weekly - the pay period ends every other Friday, beginning January 9, 2004.
Account questions should be directed to your PERS account manager or to the general Employer Service Center email address: PERS.edx.support@state.or.us. Employers who want to change their reporting frequency should contact their PERS account manager.
General questions about report periods and late reporting may be e-mailed to the employer education team at: PERS-employer.info.services@state.or.us.
