Correcting Service Errors

Dec 15, 2021, 08:26 AM by MOSERS

MOSERS sometimes discovers or is notified of an employee who is working in a benefit-eligible position but not enrolled in MOSERS benefits and needs to have service added. This is typically the result of the employee not being enrolled into the Statewide Employee Benefit Enrollment System (SEBES) at the time of hire or being misclassified as non-benefit eligible when they were entered into SEBES.

As a reminder, all newly-hired benefit-eligible employees (or former employees who have missed at least 30 calendar days of payroll) must be keyed into SEBES on their date of hire, or as soon as possible thereafter. 

To add the service, the human resource personnel of the department or agency that employed the member for the dates in question should complete and submit the Application to Correct Service form to MOSERS. This form can be accessed and submitted online through the MOSERS secure Employer Login. Before the service can be added, the department or agency must agree to pay MOSERS any necessary contributions for the period of service. Likewise, members of MSEP 2011 must contribute employee retirement contributions for the period of service. When this occurs, it is the responsibility of the employing agency or department to notify the employee and collect the necessary employee contributions.
