Every January PERS 2 members who established membership prior to March 1, 2002 have the opportunity to transfer to PERS 3.
To help you determine if this may be a prudent change for you, WSU is offering presentations on January 21, 2015 which will provide information about the differences between PERS 2 and PERS 3. Visit “Current Benefit Events” on the Human Resource Website at http://hrs.wsu.edu/Benefits for more information, including the location of the presentation, and the times they are offered.
Additional resources you may wish to review include:
- PERS 2 and 3 Choice Booklet
- PERS Online Plan Comparison Tool
- PERS 2 Handbook
- PERS 3 Handbook
- Department of Retirement Systems Website – January Transfer Window
To transfer to PERS 3, which will be an irrevocable decision, complete a Member Information Form and submit it to Human Resource Services no later than January 31, 2015. The form is also available at the Pullman HRS Office at 139 French Administration Building.
If you miss this opportunity, you will have to wait until next January 2016 for the next transfer window. If you have questions or need additional information regarding the annual PERS transfer you can call the Pullman HRS office at 509-335-4521 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
