Public Employees Retirement System > Web site
The Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) has administered retirement benefits for Oregon’s public sector workers (state, local government and school district employees) since 1945. PERS serves approximately 210,000 active/inactive members, 135,000 benefit recipients and 925 employers. The system pays approximately $3.7 billion in benefits annually; about $3.3 billion is paid to Oregon residents. Those in-state payments support an estimated 35,999 jobs in Oregon. Investment income provided 73.8 percent of total PERS revenue from 1970–2014, with member contributions providing 5.6 percent and employer contributions providing 20.6 percent. Nearly 35 percent of PERS members are currently eligible to retire.
