Recently Adopted PERS Administrative Rules
Comment on Administrative Rules
PERS Administrative Rules (Chapter 459 can be found on the Oregon State Archives website.)
Proposed Administrative Rules
IRC and Social Security Limitations
The Internal Revenue Service revises various dollar limits annually based on cost-of-living adjustments. These revisions are used throughout the PERS plan’s statutes and rules, but revisions to the limits must be adopted by the legislature or PERS Board to be effective.
The proposed rule modifications incorporate these federal adjustments for calendar year 2018 and are necessary to ensure compliance with the federal limits on the amount of annual compensation allowed for determining contributions and benefits, annual benefits, and annual additions to PERS.
Also, under ORS 238.082, a Tier One or Tier Two retired member who is receiving Social Security benefits and who returns to PERS-covered employment may continue to receive their PERS retirement benefits so long as they work less than 1,040 hours or do not exceed any related Social Security annual compensation limits. The proposed modifications to OAR 459-017-0060 adopt the 2018 Social Security earnings limitations. For these increases to be effective, the PERS Board must adopt these rule modifications.
Disability Definitions and Eligibility
Modify rules regarding disability to update and add definitions; update specialist requirements; address effect of unemployment benefits in determining disability eligibility; clarify when PERS may request evaluations or exams; add physical capacity to independent evaluations; clarify periodic review standard; clarify burden of proof for OPSRP disability.
