6.4: Questionable Years After FY 2006 Report

Last Revised: Feb 1, 2016


This report identifies members who have a questionable year for a particular fiscal year beginning with FY 2007. At the end of each fiscal year, new records are added based on our Questionable Year criteria after employer salary and contribution reporting closes. 
Employers must  correct/certify Questionable Year data from each year’s report using TRSL’s online processes (see Indices 4.6, 6.1, and 6.2) within three (3) years of posting. Questionable Years updated after the three year timeline and results in a change in service credit may result in actuarial charges to the employer.

TRSL will send a broadcast email message when a new fiscal year closes and is posted to the Questionable Year report.
