Each toolkit consists of documents and tools needed to build XML files to report health, membership, and payroll to CalPERS. The contents of the toolkit are contained in a ZIP file, which preserves the format of the schema files and eases downloading. You can use WinZip to unpack the files.

Toolkits

Download the Employer's Technical Toolkit (ZIP, 35.3 MB) and read the Employer's Guide to the Technical Toolkit (PDF) for an overview and instructions on how to extract the files within, including the glossary, download instructions, toolkit contents, file descriptions, and flowcharts.

Making Payments

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

The new CalPERS ACH ID number is 1946207465. If you pay by EFT, you must establish a new EFT account in my|CalPERS and notify your bank that this CalPERS ACH ID number is assigned to an approved payee. Without this preapproval, your EFT payment will not be processed by your bank. In the event you submitted an EFT using the incorrect CalPERS ACH ID, please resubmit the EFT with the new CalPERS ACH ID listed above.
