CLER Carrier Information

Subscribe to CLER (Carrier Use Only)

The Office of Personnel Management’s Centralized Enrollment Clearinghouse (CLER) provides online reconciliation for all Federal Payroll Offices and FEHB Carriers. Carrier enrollment data files are an integral part of this reconciliation process. Carriers are reminded to transmit enrollment data files as of the first day of the month in each reconciliation quarter.

Important notes for successful transmission and reconciliation

Please be sure that user ID’s are actively utilized at least once each 30 day period so that the ID does not get suspended for inactivity. Establishing an automated transmission file of enrollment data each pay cycle may eliminate or reduce missed transmission deadlines. Keeping contact information up to date in CLER is crucial to reconciliation efforts. Timely processing of enrollment and termination actions reduces discrepancies. Utilizing the Carrier comment block in CLER, under Carrier Validate, is a great way to provide necessary information to Payroll Offices to assist in reconciling discrepancies.
