As a public employee you are eligible for retirement benefits administered by the Department of Retirement Systems (DRS). New PERS members only have 90 calendar days to choose between two different pension plans – Plan 2 or Plan 3. Review the Plan Choice Booklet and Plan Choice Video for information, tools, and resources that will help you determine your goals for retirement and how to best meet them. As a newly eligible employee, once you make a plan choice, you cannot change plans. If you don’t make a choice between plans within 90 days of becoming a public employee, you will automatically be placed in Plan 3, and you cannot later decide to become a member of Plan 2.
