    Preparing for MOSERS Annual Life Insurance Review

    MOSERS is making final preparations for our Annual Optional Term Life Insurance Review which will occur during the month of October. MOSERS does not send mail to members who have an invalid address on file in our system. It is important that we have correct mailing addresses on file for all benefit-eligible employees. Please sign in to the Employer Login and select the MOSERS Invalid Address report. Submit any necessary changes as soon as possible so that eligible employees will receive their review forms at the proper mailing address.


  • Salary Verification

    Aug 16, 2021, 10:43 AM By MOSERS

    The Salary Verification Report is ready to work. If you are responsible for working this report, please sign in to the Employer Login, hover over the Error Reports heading, and click the Salary Verification Report.

    Names of individuals responsible for working the report will appear. You may view any or all portions of the report by clicking on the appropriate name or department. You will then be able to submit your responses to MOSERS electronically.

    The report is essential in ensuring that covered employees receive the correct amount of life insurance coverage each year. The report must be completed by September 7th.

    Eligible employees receive one times their annual salary in basic life insurance coverage. The amount of coverage adjusts each January according to the employee's annual earnings in effect on July 31 of the previous year or the employee's first day of coverage, if not covered on July 31.

    • Annual earnings include normal earnings from a benefit-eligible position, including shift differential pay.
    • Overtime pay and other irregular payments are excluded from annual earnings.
    • If an employee is working in both a benefit-eligible and non-benefit eligible position at the same time, only pay from the benefit-eligible position is included in annual earnings.

    For the report, MOSERS used the SAM II base salary plus shift differential pay from the July 2021 payroll file to update basic and optional life insurance coverage amounts for most state employees. Manual salary verification is still needed for hourly and intermittent employees, employees on leave, employees working in multiple positions, and anyone not in SAM II.

    Last year we received a few inquiries regarding the pay types of "retention pay," a "security differential," and "COVID-19 pay." Please note:

    • Retention pay and a security differential (just as a shift differential noted above) are included in annual earnings.
    • COVID-19 pay, on the other hand, is excluded from annual earnings.
    If you have questions about the annual salary verification process, please email employers@mosers.org. You can also watch a brief video tutorial on how to work the report if needed.

  • Upcoming Annual Salary Verification Report

    Jul 14, 2021, 9:35 AM By MOSERS

    We will release the Annual Salary Verification Report in mid-August and send a follow-up notice when the report is ready for you to view and work it.

    The report is an essential step in ensuring that covered employees receive the correct basic life insurance coverage each year.

    Eligible employees receive one times their annual salary in basic life insurance coverage. The amount of coverage adjusts each January according to the employee’s annual earnings in effect on July 31 of the previous year (or the employee’s first day of coverage if not covered on July 31).

    • Annual earnings include normal earnings from a benefit-eligible position, including shift differential pay.
    • Overtime pay and other irregular payments are excluded from annual earnings.

    Last year we received a few inquiries regarding the pay types of “retention pay,” a “security differential,” and “COVID-19 pay.”  Please note:

    • Retention pay and a security differential (just as a shift differential noted above) are included in annual earnings.
    • COVID-19 pay, on the other hand, is excluded from annual earnings.

    Additionally, if an employee is working in both a benefit-eligible and non-benefit eligible position at the same time, only pay from the benefit-eligible position is included in annual earnings.

    Please email employers@mosers.org if you have questions about the annual salary verification process. You can also watch a brief video tutorial on how to work the report, if needed.


  • Important Salary Verification Report Information

    Aug 13, 2020, 1:55 PM By MOSERS

    If you are responsible for working the Annual Salary Verification Report, please note the report is now available online in the secure portion of MOSERS' employer website. Please click on the Employer Login section of the site and use your Social Security number and password to log in.

    Once you are logged in, click the Error Reports heading, and then the Salary Verification Report heading. Names of individuals responsible for working the Salary Verification Report will appear. You may view any or all portions of the report by clicking on the appropriate name or department. You will then be able to submit your responses to MOSERS electronically.

    The Salary Verification Report is used to update the member's life insurance coverage amounts and optional life insurance premiums for January of each calendar year. MOSERS has used SAM II base salary plus shift differential information from July payroll to update basic and optional life insurance amounts for most state employees. Manual salary verification is still needed for hourly and intermittent employees, employees on leave, those with multiple state positions, and anyone who is not in SAM II. Do not include second appointment salaries for employees in multiple state positions.

    Please provide the requested information by September 6th. It is critical that we promptly receive this information to provide correct information for employees this fall. If you have any questions, please contact Thania at (573) 644-1290 or email: thaniaf@mosers.org. You can also watch a video tutorial on how to work the Salary Verification Report.
