How to Correct Service Errors

Jul 18, 2023, 08:27 AM by MOSERS

Occasionally, employers misclassify a benefit-eligible employee as non-benefit-eligible at the time of hire or neglect to enroll a benefit-eligible employee through SEBES. Fortunately, there is an easy way to correct those mistakes when they occur.

Benefit-eligible employees are entitled to service and salary credit towards the calculation of their future pension. 

Your agency must pay employer contributions for pension, life insurance, and long-term disability benefits (as applicable) for all benefit-eligible employees. Additionally, your agency remits employee contributions to MOSERS on behalf of MSEP 2011 and Judicial Plan 2011 employees.

Once you discover the mistake, ensure the employee is entered into SEBES. Then, log in to the Employer Login, enter the employee's SSN, and select the Forms tab to complete the Application to Correct Service. 

Once MOSERS receives the application, we will work with your agency to collect the necessary contributions, including contacting the Office of Administration to approve any corrections for agencies that use the SAM II payroll system.
