Service Transfers and Recognition
If you have service with another Missouri public retirement system, you may be able to transfer that service to PEERS or have it recognized by PEERS.
Service transfers are complex and must be determined on an individual basis. If you have service with another Missouri public retirement system and are vested in both PEERS and the other system, please contact us for more information.
Recognition of Service
If you are vested with two or more Missouri educational retirement systems, you may be able to recognize the service with PEERS, at no cost.
Participating Missouri educational retirement systems are:
- The Public School Retirement System of Missouri (PSRS)
- The Public Education Employee Retirement System of Missouri (PEERS)
- The Public School Retirement System of the School District of Kansas City (KCPSRS)
- The Public School Retirement System of the City of St. Louis (PSRSSTL)
Recognizing service may allow you to retire sooner or with a higher benefit factor used in your benefit calculation. Your PEERS benefit is calculated using only your years of service and salaries on record with PEERS.
Recognition of service is not a service transfer. When you recognize service from another Missouri educational retirement system you do not forfeit your service with the other retirement system. Please contact us for more information.
