PERS Expo 2021 registration now open
Learn more about your PERS benefits and how you can create a secure retirement.
“PERS Expo 2021: Your Gateway to a Secure Retirement" will be offered online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Expo 2021 will feature two days of live, interactive, and on-demand presentations; question-and-answer sessions; and other resources on Oct. 5 and 6. This content will repeat, so there is no need to attend both days.
You also will be able to visit the Expo website and explore many of its resources for a limited time after the event.
Expo will provide you with information about your PERS benefits, additional retirement savings options, post-retirement health insurance options, the PERS retirement process, and other related topics.
Register for PERS Expo 2021 today to get started on your path to a secure retirement.
Celebrating 75 Years
For 75 years, PERS has been serving those who serve Oregon. Since 1946, we have helped hundreds of thousands of Oregonians retire after their years of service to their communities. Our history is long and our future bright. We have created a commemorative logo for this year, which is now in use on our website, and have updated our history document to mark this milestone. We invite you to
read about our journey and celebrate with us.
Emergency Broadband Benefit
Broadband is a necessity, not a luxury. The internet is the platform on which the world works, and broadband is the universal common denominator. Members may be interested to know that applications will open May 12 for federal COVID-relief to discount broadband access by $50/mo ($75/mo on tribal lands) for qualifying households. It also includes limited opportunity for subsidized purchase of computers and tablets. Members in qualifying households—including OHP & SNAP beneficiaries—can sign up for a monthly $50 @FCC benefit: https://getemergencybroadband.org.
