myETFEmployer Training - All Sessions Canceled

myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation Training -

Confirmation file imageThese sessions focus on the myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation/Testing process and the relevant users’ guide. These sessions teach employers how to submit employee information through myETF, and work through some common errors.

We will offer both file upload and manual entry sessions in the in-person and online formats. Determine which course fits your needs:

myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation – File Upload: This training targets individuals who will submit payroll information and demographic updates via the myETF Payroll and/or Employment Files in myETF Employer Online Services for myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation. Employer payroll vendors who handle payroll responsibilities on behalf of employers are also required to attend this training.

myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation – Manual Entry: These sessions offer the important information needed by individuals who intend to manually confirm their payroll information.

(For more information on your choices read, “Should I Use myETF File Upload or Submit Manual Work Reports?” in the June myETF Messenger.)

Employers are required to have at least one staff member participate in a myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation session, including employers who plan to submit information manually to ETF. Employer payroll vendors who handle payroll responsibilities on behalf of employers are also required to attend the webinar version of this training. In-person training is reserved for employers, with a limit of two attendees per employer.

In-Person Sessions

We're responding to employer requests to offer in-person trainings on this topic this spring. If you've already attended a webinar or just want a refresher, you are welcome to attend an in-person session. During in-person sessions when time allows, we will walk employers through their confirmation requirement.

All employers who plan to attend in-person confirmation training should attempt to complete myETF confirmation by following the appropriate instructions. This will allow instructors to address questions specific to the attendees’ experiences. When time allows, we will help employers resolve errors they encounter.

Manual Entry Confirmation Instructions

File Upload Confirmation Instructions - Employers who will use the file upload method should upload their payroll file to the confirmation instance before training in the event that there is time to complete your confirmation requirement.

The myETF Employer Payroll File or the myETF Employer Employment File (if applicable) training(s) are a prerequisite to the myETF Employer Reporting Confirmation training (see below).

myETF Employment File Resource Training - Updated in 2018

Payroll file imageThis 30-minute recorded webinar focuses on the myETF Employment File Resource.

This training targets individuals who will submit employment and demographic information to ETF. The myETF Employment File Resource training is required for at least one staff member of every employer who offers ETF-administered life, health or income continuation insurance benefits, including those who plan to submit information manually through myETF Employer Online Services. We recommend the training for all other employers.

The Employment File allows employers to submit information about new employees to ETF prior to the payroll information submission in which those employees are first reported. Doing so will enable employees to enroll in ETF-administered insurance benefits within the appropriate eligibility window, which may close before the employer submits payroll information. Employers may also use this file to report changes to current employee demographic and enrollment information that needs to be processed before the next payroll information submission. All employers will have the ability to submit Employment Files; however, it is not required. Employers that do not offer ETF-administered insurance benefits may choose to first report new employees via the payroll information submission. Smaller employers, even those that offer ETF-administered insurance benefits, may choose to manually enter this information into myETF Employer Online Services.

The recorded webinars were updated in 2018 with the new timeline and to clarify some frequently asked questions. There is no substantial change to the material presented.
