Employer Self-Paced EDX Education
EDX Employer Training
This is the same training offered concurrently through the Internet and at the PERS Tigard facility. The training is provided online for your convenience, and is divided into three parts:
EDX Basic Concepts covers primary EDX roles and report types. The DTL1 Member Demographics and DTL2 Wage and Service records receive a line-by-line review. The purpose and format of DTL2 adjustment records and the Demographic Correction Request (DCR) are covered, along with examples of reporting situations encountered by PERS employers. You may download and print the EDX Basic Concepts handout which totals approximately 60 pages.
EDX Reporting Topics-Eligibility reviews the concept and effect of the employer’s stated “hire intent” for a job. The concepts of “position type,” active service, non-qualifying service and their relationship to “hire intent” are examined. Eligibility requirements for OPSRP Pension and IAP (Individual Account Program) membership are outlined. Suggested steps for eligibility determination and application of those steps to eligibility examples are also presented. You may download and print the EDX Reporting Topics-Eligibility handout which totals approximately 10 pages.
EDX Reporting Topics-Reporting Retirees reviews Tier One/Tier Two and OPSRP retiree work limits as PERS retirees working for PERS employers. The sequence of events required to bring an individual onboard as a PERS retiree working part-time is covered. The responsibility for knowing and observing PERS retiree annual work limits and the consequences of exceeding those annual work limits are spelled out in detail. You may download and print the EDX Reporting Topics-Reporting Retirees handoutwhich totals approximately 10 pages.
EDX Employer post-Training quiz
A post-training quiz is available. Quiz completion is voluntary but offers a valuable review of covered concepts and allows PERS to refine EDX Employer Training. Your quiz participation would be greatly appreciated.
