What are "Basics for Employers" Meetings?

You may have seen our recent emails advertising our ASRS Basics for Employers meetings, but do you know what information is covered and who they’re for?

The ASRS Basics for Employers training is an overview of employer responsibilities regarding the Arizona State Retirement System.  This training is geared toward employer Human Resources, Payroll, Benefits, and Administration personnel and designed for staff who want an update on ASRS functions and employer responsibilities with regard to ASRS processes.  

Topics covered in the training session include an overview of the ASRS, benefits of ASRS membership, membership eligibility, ASRS compensation, employer termination incentive programs, contribution reporting, service purchase, refunds, and return to work.  

The ASRS Basics for Employers meetings are offered before and after the ASRS Employer Conference meetings each year, during spring and winter, and upon request if an employer would like to schedule a training session for staff at their location.  While our next scheduled presentation of this meeting will be in the first quarter of 2020, any employers interested in scheduling ASRS Basics for Employers training at their location can contact the ASRS Employer Relations team at [email protected].
