What is a Designated Agent

A designated agent (DA) is an employee from a KPERS-affiliated employer who is a liaison between the Retirement System and his or her employer. A DA’s main responsibility is to relay Retirement System information to members and perform transactions using the employer web portal (EWP).  Details

Distributing Information

The Retirement System will provide DAs with information to relay to KPERS members. Retirement System changes can affect members on a day-to-day basis, so it’s important to distribute member information in a timely manner. Examples include:

  • Legislation affecting a member’s retirement planning
  • Notice of upcoming KPERS informational meetings
  • Member newsletters and other e-mails
  • Member annual statements

Helpful Information

Using the Employer Web Portal (EWP)

Designated agents will do almost every KPERS-related transaction on the EWP, which includes:

  • Enrolling employees
  • Reporting pay info
  • Providing end dates
  • Paying invoices

Employer Workshop Seminar & Webinar

Each fall, KPERS hosts employer seminars at locations across the state. We also host employer webinars in the fall and, if needed, at other times. These presentations are for designated agents and other staff who are just getting started, want to learn new procedures or just want a refresher. Details

The Basics

A new series of stripped-down employer videos to get the big-picture. More to follow.

We're glad you're here!

When you have questions
