Reporting Instruction Manual
The Reporting Instruction Manual (RIM) provides information and instructions to help you comply with the reporting and payment requirements of the retirement law. The information contained in the manual is adapted from statute, board decisions, and retirement system policy. Should there be any discrepancies between the Reporting Instruction Manual and the actual law, the provisions of the law govern.
The chapters of this manual are listed on the left navigation bar. You may need to scroll down to see all fifteen chapter names. Click on the chapter name to see the sections of the chapter. Or you may search the manual by using the Search box at the top right of the screen.
- Search results will include pages in the Reporting Instruction Manual as well as other pages on the Employer Information website.
- To see more RIM sections in your search results, click on the link that appears at the bottom right of the search results page and reads "repeat the search with the omitted results included."
- To find an exact phrase, put the phrase in quotes. The results will only include pages with the same words in the same order as the ones inside the quotes.
- For example searching on "defined contribution" will show only the results with that phrase, leaving out results with the word defined alone or contribution alone.
