HAS Tables

Colorado PERA’s Highest Average Salary (HAS) percentage tables show you, based on your age and years of service at retirement, what percentage of your HAS will be used to calculate your monthly retirement benefit. Use the chart below to determine which table applies to you.

The shaded areas on the tables indicate reduced service retirement percentages. The percentages in the shaded areas on tables PERA 2, PERA 4, PERA 6, PERA 7, PERA 8, DPS 3, DPS 4, and State Troopers/CBI Agents 2 ensure that, as of the effective date of retirement, your reduced service retirement benefit is the actuarial equivalent of your full service retirement benefit. These percentages are subject to change based on actuarial experience.
