Employer Classroom Training Sessions

APERS has scheduled a series of classroom training sessions for employers in 2018.  There are links to the schedule and registration forms below.

Administering the retirement system is a shared responsibility between APERS and its participating employers.  Employers have the regular responsibilities of enrolling their employees, reporting compensation and service information, and remitting payments.  The employer training sessions provide employers with the tools and information to perform these responsibilities. 

The sessions cover the laws and regulations governing enrollment and reporting with topics including membership eligibility, return to work provisions, contributory provisions, contribution rates, compensation eligibility, and reporting deadlines.  In addition, the sessions provide an overview of how to perform these functions in the Employer Self-Service (ESS) portal.

All sessions will be held at APERS' offices in Little Rock on the 2nd floor of the Union Plaza Building at 124 W. Capitol Ave. (unless otherwise noted).


Non-AASIS agencies: All county, municipal, public school, and non-state employers as well as state employers that do not use the Arkansas Administrative Statewide Information System. Sessions will be from 9:00 am to 11:00 am (unless otherwise noted).
