OneMonitor your IMRF account balance

When an employer submits a monthly wage report, IMRF provides the amount the employer owes for the current wage reporting period. To ensure the correct payment amounts are submitted to IMRF, review your employer's current account balance in Employer Access.


View your employer's IMRF account balance any time by logging in to your Employer Access account, choosing the "Payments" header on the home page, and selecting "Display Account Balance."

The Account Balance page will show your employer's current account balance (located at the top of the page), and note details of all payments and charges applied to your IMRF account, including details of any charges or credits.

TwoDeep July 2015 Employer Reminder:

Independent contractors and IMRF

According to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations, a worker is either an employee or an independent contractor based on the facts of the relationship between the employer and the worker.


There are specific characteristics of an independent contractor that employers need to consider before classifying a worker as such, including behavioral, financial, and the type of relationship. IMRF uses the IRS guidelines when performing employer audits to determine if the proper wages were reported.
