We understand if PERA hasn’t been top of mind for you, but remember that, as someone formerly employed by a PERA-covered employer, you still have a lifetime PERA retirement income waiting for you once you’re ready.
As a former PERA-covered employee, your PERA contributions continue to work for you and gain interest. You may even be eligible to draw your PERA retirement income sooner depending on your work history.
To understand more about retirement income from PERA, log in to your secure account or register as a new user. If you have never logged in before, you can watch this video for help setting up your account.
Once on your PERA homepage, click “Termination Options” to see when you are eligible to begin drawing your retirement income and get a benefit estimate.
