ARP Reports

1. What is the current ARP mitigating contribution rate?

 

The current ARP mitigating contribution rate is 4.47% of each ARP participant's compensation.

2. When are the monthly ARP mitigating contributions due?

 

The monthly ARP mitigating contribution report, and its associated payment, are due the 15th of the month for the prior month’s payroll.

3. What are the allowable methods of submitting my monthly ARP mitigating contribution report?

 

The monthly ARP mitigating contribution report must be submitted to STRS Ohio electronically by one of the following methods:

  • Secure file upload on our website; or
  • Online entry in ESS.

4. Can I submit more than one ARP mitigating contribution for the same person in a month?

 

No, ARP mitigating contribution reports can contain only one record per person, per month. However, see question 6 below for information about how to correct previously reported contributions via ESS.

5. Can I submit negative ARP mitigating contributions on my monthly ARP mitigating contribution report?

 

No, you may only report positive contributions on the monthly ARP mitigating contribution report. However, see question 6 below for information about how to correct previously reported contributions via ESS.

6. How can I correct a monthly ARP mitigating contribution report that I have discovered contained incorrect information?

 

Reporting errors can be corrected by creating an ARP Report adjustment in ESS. If the correction results in an additional contribution payment due, pay the necessary amount to STRS Ohio and submit a cash remittance form (except when paying online through ESS direct debit). If the correction results in a net return of contributions to your school, then email your STRS Ohio payroll reporting representative to let us know whether the excess contributions will be used to pay future obligations or should be refunded to the school.

7. Where can I find more information on the ARP election and reporting process?

 

STRS Ohio's ARP Reporting Instructions detail the election and ARP reporting process.
