You can phone 334.517.7005 or email employer.services@rsa-al.gov if you have any questions.

Employer Services Representatives will assist employers regarding correct member data, sick leave participation and reporting, payroll and personnel reporting requirements, time deadlines and required documentation submission, proper member retirement tier assignment, class assignment and contribution payment type, as well as provide information on plan program eligibility, and membership rights and obligations.
