PERA will now accept electronic signatures on the PERAChoice Election and Release form. In addition to the member’s electronic signature, please ensure that the “For Payroll/Personnel Use Only” portion of the form is completed.
Please note that this change applies only to the PERAChoice Election and Release form. Electronic signatures on other PERA forms will not be accepted.
Completed forms can be mailed or faxed to PERA’s offices, or a PDF copy of the form(s) can be uploaded through the Secure Transfer and Reporting System (STARS) via the Retirement Plan Choice File Transfer tool.
Only authorized users can access STARS. If you need to authorize a new user, or add additional access to an existing account, please contact your PERA Employer Representative.
If you have questions regarding this change, please contact your Employer Representative. The Employer Relations Team can also be reached by email at EmployerRelations@copera.org or by phone at 303-863-3724.
