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.
For the last 74 years, the Public School and Education Employee Retirement Systems of Missouri have worked in partnership with Missouri public schools to provide retirement benefits to our members.
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 June 30 2020, over 97,000 individuals received benefits from PSRS/PEERS. Total annual benefits paid were nearly $3.1 billion. Of this amount, more than $2.7 billion, or 89%, was distributed among Missouri's 114 counties, positively impacting the state's economy.
