Since 1946, PSRS, has provided certificated public school employees and their families with a significant and stable source of retirement income, disability and survivor benefits. PEERS (formerly NTRS) has done the same for non-certificated public school personnel since 1965. Over the years, both PSRS and PEERS have continued to provide excellent service and reliable retirement benefits to our members through strategic, proactive management and innovative, prudent investing.
