New Document Transmission Method
The Office of the State Auditor (OSA) has begun using an application called Filr to share revised reporting forms and other documents that contain not-public data with relief association trustees and authorized consultants. Before we share a document using Filr, we will send a courtesy e-mail explaining that a form or document will be made available for transmission and provide you with instructions on how to retrieve the shared file.
Soon after our courtesy e-mail, you should receive a second email containing a link. Sometimes the e-mail gets incorrectly identified as spam, so check your spam folder if you do not see it shortly after receiving the courtesy e-mail.
When you click on the link, you will be taken to a web page to register. Your User ID will be your e-mail address. Enter your name and a password of your choosing. Your Filr login information will not be the same as the information you use to log into the State Auditor’s Form Entry System (SAFES).
After you submit your information by clicking the “Register” button, you should receive a confirmation e-mail with a link to sign in and access the reporting form or document that we are sharing.
You only need to complete the registration process once. If you receive subsequent e-mails from us with links to access reporting forms or documents using Filr you should be able to login using your initial User ID and password.
Filr can also be used by relief association trustees and authorized consultants to transmit documents containing not-public data to our office. Examples of documents that should be shared with us using Filr because they contain not-public data include worksheets showing service pension calculations or benefit payment information, and revised Schedule Forms. Do not send documents containing not-public data by e-mail unless a secure system is used.
Please contact a member of the Pension Division team if you would like to transmit a document using the Filr application.
