Retirement Plan Options
- Defined Benefit Plan - Retirement income is based on a fixed formula that considers your years of service, age, and final average salary.
- Defined Contribution Plan - Retirement income is based on a fixed formula that considers your years of service, age, and final average salary.
Enrollment in the retirement program is required effective the first day of employment for all permanent full-time and part-time employees. Temporary employees must enroll in the retirement program once they have worked 750 hours or are expected to work 750 hours in a calendar year.
Employees have 30 days from the first date of eligibility to select enrollment in either the Defined Benefit Plan or the Defined Contribution Plan. Failure to select a plan within 30 days will result in automatic enrollment in SERS, the Defined Benefit Plan for Pennsylvania public employees.
