The IPERS retirement plan is a Defined Benefit Plan. Retirement income is contingent on a formula based on your years of service and salary earned. For further information on the IPERS program, please refer to their website or contact IPERS directly at (800) 622-3849.
If you participate in IPERS, you must complete an IPERS Enrollment/Beneficiary Designation Form (pdf) to designate a beneficiary for these funds in case of your death before retirement. This form can be downloaded on the IPERS website or found in your Benefits Orientation packet.
