Deferment Job Aids Updated!

Image of wood blocks with letters that spell out the word UPDATEWe’re excited to announce updates to our Deferments Job Aid found on the TRS Resources Page! 

The updates include a separation of each deferment process, making it easier for members to locate what is most relevant to their filing or responding needs.    

The deferment processes include the following: You will also notice a different format. Instead of the traditional Word format, each job aid was drafted in PowerPoint and converted to a PDF for advanced visuals and navigation. A Table of Contents page was added to include active hyperlinks allowing members to move through content without getting lost.

Since launching in December 2020, members have had several months to experience the full benefits of filing PIP and Med Pay in TRS. Here’s what they’re saying:

“I've noticed a great reduction of turnaround time of cases being filed and being heard, compared to using the original OLF platform.”

“It's very easy to access and navigate through the website.”

“I feel like it's very user-friendly. It walked me through everything. I like the set up. I can't imagine going back to the old system.”

Please note that TRS may not be used for NY PIP filings at this time. 

Need assistance? The TRS Resources page offers the latest guides, tutorials, and helpful tips.
