Police and Fire Unit purchases need prior approval by PERS staff who determine the rate or outcome of the unit purchases. Do not send forms directly to PERS. All forms are sent to the Centralized PERS Services Team to work with PERS. Once the Centralized PERS Services Team receives approval they will contact the agency regarding the necessary entries in OSPA. Due to the required prior approval process please do not add, change or delete the OSPA P070 screen PRNN deduction without first working with the Centralized PERS Services Team.
Only Police and Firefighter (P&F) employees of the PERS Chapter 238 Program (Tier One or Tier Two) may purchase police and fire units. Police and Fire Units are not available for employees the Oregon Public Service Retirement Plan (OPSRP).
