Comprehensive Oregon Public Employee Retirement Planning

As an employee of the state of Oregon, you have access to Oregon retirement benefits once you're a member of the Public Employee's Retirement System (PERS).  Depending on your initial membership date, you're a member of Tier 1, Tier 2, or the Oregon Public Employees Retirement plan. 

In addition to your pension plan, you'll also be a member of the Oregon Individual Account Program (IAP).

You will have access to supplemental retirement plans such as a 403b or 457 plan.  While your employer pays for most of your PERS benefits, the supplemental plans allow you save additional dollars as a payroll deduction.
