Retirement Plans >>

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.

Voluntary Retirement Plans >>

The State System offers two additional options to save and invest extra money for retirement. Whether you are supplementing your group retirement plan or you are not eligible to enroll in the group retirement plan, the voluntary supplemental retirement plans are available to all employees upon their date of hire. Employees can choose to contribute up to the annual IRS limits in both plans. There are no employer contributions for these plans.
