​​Notice: If you are having difficulties finding a notary for your Service Retirement Application, you can submit your application without notarization and later re-submit that page once completed. PERS now accepts documents with remote online notarization by vendors that meet the requirements of the Oregon Secretary of State. All forms still must be received before your effective retirement date.
