Retirement Internet Reporting (RIR) System

Share This Page:

Enter the Retirement Internet Reporting (RIR) system — For employers currently participating in RIR (Note: This is a secure site. You must have a User Name and Password to enter.)

The RIR system allows participating employers to report monthly employee service, salary and contribution information for their members to the New York State (NYS) & Local Employees’ and Police & Fire Retirement Systems via the Internet.

All data is secure. Participants will be assigned a User Identification (ID) and Password after they have contacted the Retirement System and committed to participating in the system.

Participating employers using RIR will:

  • Stop mailing hard copies or diskettes
  • Make corrections online, thereby reducing the need for Adjustment Reports
  • Receive detailed explanations of any problems encountered, boosting timeliness and accuracy of data posted
  • Have the opportunity to take advantage of Electronic Debits (Payments)
  • Be required to make corrections for any errors in their reports (see reporting format edits the Retirement Systems will use to validate your report). If an employer chooses to include these edits as part of their internal preparation process, they could virtually eliminate the need to correct errors online.
  • Be able to submit adjustments online via Retirement Adjustment Reporting (RAR).

How to sign up for the program

  • After contacting the Retirement System to participate in the system, the first step for local government employers will be to change to the new Expanded Record Format and Reporting Label Format.
  • After converting to the new format, you will be asked to send a test file to the Retirement System.
  • This file will be reviewed and once approved, the Retirement System will process the Employer Certification form Adobe pdf. The form is used to certify that the report information is correct and designate a security coordinator.
  • Once this form is returned, you will be provided with a “User Name” and “Password” which will enable the employer access to the web address and a test plan to use in testing your report over the Internet.
  • Once testing is complete, you will be given a new web address to start submitting monthly reports using the assigned User Name and Password.
