Effective Sept. 11, 2017, STRS Ohio reporting employers will be able to complete withdrawal certifications through Employer Self Service (ESS). Similar to retirement reporting, this new feature allows employers to complete the requested information and correct, view or print certifications that have been previously submitted online. Online withdrawal certification submission will allow for faster and more efficient processing of withdrawals.
To access these required reports, please log in to ESS at www.strsoh.org/employer. Once logged in, click on "Withdrawal Certification" in the Application menu. All reports requiring completion will be displayed under the Reports To Be Completed tab. These reports are due to STRS Ohio within one week of the notification date listed. For step-by-step instructions on completing these reports, please see the withdrawal certification instructions or the full ESS Instructions on the STRS Ohio Employer Website.
If you have questions, please contact the Employer Reporting Department toll-free at 888‑535‑4050.
