Information by Employer Task



Social Security (FICA) Reimbursement for
School Districts, Boards of Education,
and Charter Schools

Instructions and reporting procedures for State Social Security (FICA) Contributions are available through the NJ Department of Education (DOE) Web site. Your first step should be to access the instructions through this link:


You may download and print the instructions in PDFT format from this page.

Next, you will need to download the program that will allow you to access DOE.NET, the actual site for transacting this business. The needed software is available at: http://www.state.nj.us/njded/data/collections/programs/doenet3.exe

Once you have logged into the DOE.NET site, you should follow the directions in the manual for reporting FICA contributions. Instructions will also be available concerning when you might expect to receive FICA reimbursement.

The manual available at the DOE main Web site is provided in this manual as a courtesy: Technical Manual Social Security Contributions System. To ensure, however, that you have most recent version of the manual, you should access it directly through the DOE Web site at: http://www.nj.gov/njded/finance/sf/sscsman.pdf.

Please note that in August 2003, the New Jersey DOE began a transition to Web-enabled DOEnet and away from DOEnet 3.0. Additional information about this transition, which is still continuing, can be viewed at: http://www.state.nj.us/njded/data/collections/wdoenet/transition.htm
