Employer Reporting

Employer responsibilities include identifying employees eligible for TFFR, reporting eligible salary and collecting and paying member and employer contributions. Accurate and timely reporting of salary and service hours is very important. Retirement plan member benefits are calculated on the information provided by TFFR employers. Please use the Employer Guide for detailed information regarding TFFR employer reporting. TFFR staff are always available to assist employers and we encourage Business Managers to attend TFFR employer training offered several times a year.

Employing a TFFR Retiree

Retired TFFR members may return to TFFR covered employment under certain employment limitations. The limits apply to TFFR covered employment which includes teaching, supervisory and administrative duties in a ND public school or state institution covered by TFFR. Please see the Working After Retirement brochure for details about hiring a retired TFFR member.

Once a school district employs a retiree, both the retiree and the employer must notify TFFR by completing a TFFR Retired Member Employment Notification form within 30 days of employment. This form, along with a copy of the retiree's contract or employment agreement, must be submitted to the administrative office each year the retiree is employed.
