Payrolls for this period must be received by our office no later than July 31, 2010. For fiscal year 2011 the cutoff will be July 15, 2011to allow for a quicker turn around of the end of the year relief reporting to employers. The relief true-up will be completed in early August to adjust for any over or under usage of the legislative relief funding. Once complete the end of the year relief reporting will be sent to employers.

  8. FY10 Employer Contribution Rates PERS/TRS DCRPlan – PERS Tier IV/TRS Tier III

  9. FY 2010 HRA Amount **Per AS 39.30.370, a rate of 3.00% is applied to the average annual compensation of all employees of all employers in the TRS and PERS. The contribution amount is then converted to a per pay period, per employee contribution amount. Contributions to the employee's HRA account are required for every pay period in which the employee is enrolled in the DCR Plan, regardless of the compensation paid during the calendar year. By definition, the HRA cost is a dollar amount reflected in the table below: For full-time TRS members who are paid over a period of less than 12 months, the employer will calculate the amount due per pay period by dividing the annual amount by the number of scheduled payments. For example, for a full-time TRS member who receives nine monthly payments the employer contribution would be $188.86 per pay period ($1,699.71 annual cost divided by nine payments).

  10. FY 2010 HRA Amount (cont.) For all school districts, please note, the prorated calculation of annual HRA contributions does not apply to PERS DCR Plan Non-certificated (classified) School Employees.  These employees are NOT eligible to elect the alternate option program (SB9).  Once the DRB PERS system is provided the Leave Without Pay (LWP) date for the last day worked for the school year, service is then turned off and HRA contributions are suspended for the summer break. For TRS part-time employees, the HRA rate is based on the contract percentage worked multiplied by the rate provided in the table above. For example, a 70% employee paid monthly would have a contribution to the HRA of $99.15 per pay period ($141.64 x 70%). For PERS part-time PERS employees, the employer contributes the PERS hourly amount for each hour the employee worked in each pay period until the employer has contributed the annual amount for the fiscal year, illustrated in the table below: FY 2010 HRA Amount (PERS part-time members) Hourly $1.09

  11. FY 2010 HRA Amount (cont.) *** The Defined Benefit Unfunded Liability (DBUL) amount levied against the DCR Plan payroll is equal to the employer effective rate minus the DCR Plan total employer contributions. For example:
