A RAAS is a 45-minute, one-on-one appointment with a PERS staff member to review PERS retirement application forms. The appointment should be within the 90 days before your PERS retirement date.


Please note: A RAAS is not a counseling session to assist you in making a decision to retire nor to review your account or obtain an estimate. It is for retirement application review.

 During the RAAS PERS staff will:
  • conduct a comprehensive review of the application and forms for accuracy and completeness,

  • notarize the application at no cost, and

  • explain the retirement application process.

 A RAAS is not intended for disability-related retirements. Please contact PERS Member Services at 888-320-7377 for disability-related retirement information.

Have you attended a PERS education session yet? To better prepare for PERS retirement, it is recommended that members attend an education session before their RAAS appointment. PERS offers workshops throughout the state:

Tier One/Tier Two members (hired before August 29, 2003) 

OPSRP members (hired after August 28, 2003)
2019 sessions will continue to be added throughout the year.
