Reporting Contributions

A contributing employer to the National Electrical Annuity Plan (NEAP) plays an important role in their employees’ retirement. As they are the first point of contact the Plan has in building their workers’ employment history, it is critically important that the NEAP receive complete and accurate data when submitting payroll reports to the NEAP.
 
An employer is are required to file a MPR each month regardless of whether or not the employer has any employees working in that calendar month. The exception to this is if this is the employer’s last MPR which should be indicated as a final report on the MPR.
 
The NEAP offers several ways for an employer to report contributions each month on behalf of their covered employees.
  1. Electronic Method
  2. Paper Method

 

Obtaining Monthly Payroll Forms

MPR forms can be obtained by contacting the employer’s appropriate NECA Chapter.

The NEAP does provide a generic MPR form called an MPR-3. The MPR-3 form is designed for the reporting of nine or fewer covered employees. When an employer reports more than nine employees in any one month, MPR-2, which is a continuation sheet, can also be downloaded and submitted as page two of the MPR-3.
