Each spring, STRS Ohio asks employers to send their pay dates for the upcoming fiscal year. This allows us to alert you when we haven’t received an expected payroll report.

Your pay date calendar for the pay period beginning July 1, 2021, and ending June 30, 2022, is now available for you to complete in ESS. The submission deadline is June 4, 2021.

To access your calendar, log in to ESS and click on “Pay Date Calendar” in the Additional Tools or Outstanding Reports section. Your pay dates may be prepopulated based on the current fiscal year’s pay schedule.

Please review, update and submit your calendar by the deadline. Once submitted, you can view or print a copy of your pay date calendar in the Documents section of ESS.

Here are a few tips to help you complete your calendar:

  • Include your main pay dates only. Supplemental pay dates should not be included.
  • To delete a prepopulated pay date, highlight the date and click the delete button on your keyboard. Then leave the field blank.
  • For step-by-step instructions on completing your calendar, see the ESS Instructions or view a brief three-minute tutorial.
