PUBLIC SCHOOL EMPLOYEES' RETIREMENT SYSTEM (PSERS)
As a public school employee, your retirement benefits are provided through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Public School Employees' Retirement System (PSERS). School districts must report all employees to PSERS, whether of a full or part-time status and an account is created for you. Your PSERS retirement benefit requires certain benefit elections to be made within a specific time frame. It is important that you take the time to review the information at the links below to familiarize yourself with your PSERS retirement benefits and the benefit elections you may have.
It is never too early to begin planning your retirement. PSERS offers a variety of resources on its website, including a Member Self-Service portal so you can access your PSERS account, retirement calculators to estimate your benefit, and a library of financial education articles to assist you in your journey to financial wellness and retirement.
