Employer Contribution Rates Scheduled to Increase

Employer contribution rates for all plans are scheduled to increase your entity's first full pay period in July 2014. Please download the FY2015 Contribution Rates for your records.

Note For Employer HR Managers

In order for PERA to be as up-to-date as possible on employee membership and beneficiaries, it is imperative that Human Resources offices send Application For PERA Membership and Beneficiary Designation forms as soon as possible after a new employee completes the forms.

PERA is no longer able to accept forms via e-mail. Additional options for submitting forms will be provided shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the meantime, please mail original forms to PERA for processing.

For additional information regarding this process, please refer to the following document:
