NHRS Employer Notification: Validating XML Files

04/21/2017
  • Employer Notices

NHRS makes available to participating employers an XML Schema Verification Application that allows employers who submit monthly wage and contribution data for active members via an XML file to test whether their file is valid before uploading it. The integrity of the data NHRS receives from its employers is crucial to our ability to effectively administer retirement benefits. The XML file verification process is only the first stage of a multi-level review of employer-submitted files. Beginning April 28, 2017, the processing of XML files will be automated and employer-submitted XML files that do not match the schema will be rejected by the Data Reporting System (DRS). Previously, NHRS staff validated the files manually before moving them into the DRS, and would notify an employer if their file had issues.
