It's never too early to begin planning for retirement. How much do you know about your retirement plan and the benefits you are entitled to receive? Even though retirement may still be years away, there are things you can do right now to make sure you get the most from your PSRS membership.
Working After Retirement
Working at a PSRS/PEERS-covered employer after retirement can affect the payment of your retirement benefits. Make sure you understand the limits as they apply to your position.
PSRS/PEERS' funding comes from three sources, member contributions, employer contributions and investment earnings. Investment earnings are the primary source of funding for every dollar of PSRS/PEERS benefits paid.
The Missouri Model
The "Missouri Model" is used in the retirement industry to describe our trust fund's operational model as the one others aspire to emulate. PSRS, as measured against all other large public retirement systems, is clearly one of, if not the top retirement system in the nation.
Benefits by County
As of December 31, 2019, over 97,000 individuals received benefits from PSRS/PEERS. Total annual benefits paid were more than $3 billion. Of this amount, more than $2.7 billion, or 89%, was distributed among Missouri's 114 counties, positively impacting the state's economy.
