Employer Electronic Record

Employer Electronic Record

One of the key advantages of Interact SSAS is that it is an “all-in-one” suite of products, where all core functionality needed by Social Security Administrations is available out of the box in one single platform without the need for any interfaces between different modules.

As a result, all data which is captured through any of the modules can be available in any other module when required.

The Employer Electronic Record brings together all relevant information from across the system in regards to Employers registered with the Social Security Administration.  It is a “multi-tab” electronic form which give instant access to any data that has already been collected on the Employer previously as well as any data that is produced by the system as a result of transactions processed.

The Employer Electronic Record consists of the following tabs:

  • General

  • Contribution Returns
  • Contribution Payments
  • Bank Accounts
  • Penalties
  • Contribution Liabilities
  • Notices
  • Dormancy Details
  • Arrears Details
