Retirement (administered by PERS)
Membership begins automatically after six (6) full months of employment for all eligible employees and enrollment is automatic. For employees who have active PERS membership at time of employment, the waiting period is waived.
The College contributes the required employee contribution of six percent (6%) of eligible gross pay into Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) on each employee's behalf, in addition to any employer contribution required; therefore, there is no deduction from employees' pay for this benefit. Additional contributions are not allowed and investment of all contributions is handled by the State of Oregon. All employees desiring to contribute pre-tax dollars to an individual retirement account may do so through Tax Sheltered Annuities and Deferred Compensation programs (see below for more information).
The retirement benefit is administered according to the rules and regulations of PERS and is subject to change.
