Kentucky Retirement Systems issues all billings and credits due to an employer through electronic invoices. Invoice types include (among others) Employer Omitted, Health Insurance Reimbursement, Monthly Reporting, and Standard Sick Leave payments. Debit invoices may be paid through the Invoices module in ESS or through the monthly Summary as part of the monthly reporting process. For more information regarding invoices, please refer to the Invoices section in the Employer Reporting Manual.
Standard Sick Leave Invoices
staff members have been working diligently to resolve outstanding
calculation issues and reduce backlog that had delayed processing the
standard sick leave invoicing. The
first, and largest, round of standard sick leave invoices were issued June 15,
2015. Additional standard sick leave
invoices will generate each month with the completion of open retirement
recalculation audits and as new retirements are processed. A separate invoice generates for each retired
employee. Employers can view and pay these
invoices in ESS under the “Invoices” tab, or select to include with the next monthly report
Summary. For agencies that participate in the standard sick leave
program, KRS bills for the actuarial difference that sick leave adds to the
retirement benefit versus not having sick leave included in compensation.
You can learn more about the sick leave program in our Employer Reporting Manual.
