During these unprecedented times, organizations are asking themselves, “Are we positioned to continue to serve our customers; remain operational?” Many are not. PSRS/PEERS most definitely is. We are operational. We are serving our members and employers. We will pay retirement benefits on time.
Due to the continued concerns about the coronavirus, the PSRS/PEERS office building is currently closed to visitors. We are operational and available to serve our members electronically or via phone. Benefit payments will be made on time, the last working day of the month.
March/April Pre-Retirement Planning Seminar Attendees: The health and well-being of our members is a top priority; therefore, we are changing March and April Pre-Retirement Planning Seminars to webinars. This will allow participants to obtain retirement planning information without the potential health risk that comes with being in a large room of people. Webinars will be listed under Upcoming Events located below.
If you do not wish to participate in the webinar, please take advantage of our individual phone counseling and web counseling options by registering via Web Member Services or by contacting our office. Learn more »

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.
