How does PERS work?
The Public Employees Retirement System functions through the partnership of three entities: the Oregon Legislature, Oregon State Treasury, and PERS, the agency. Learn more
about the role each one plays in supporting your retirement system.
PERS Expo 2022 website still available
If you missed “PERS Expo 2022: Aspire to Retire” in early October, don’t worry. You can still access the website to learn more about your PERS benefits and how you can create a secure retirement.
The Expo 2022 website will remain open until December 31, 2022.
You can explore information about your PERS benefits, additional retirement savings options, post-retirement health insurance options, the PERS retirement process, and other related topics.
Resources include videos, recorded sessions and workshops, and retirement checklists. Check out the “Ask Experts” area of the website for questions your fellow public employees posed while the Expo event was live on October 5 and 6. Note that PERS is no longer accepting live questions via the website.
Return to the Expo website as often as you need to gain a better understanding of your PERS retirement benefits.
