Welcome to SERS!
Established in 1923, the Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement System is one of the nation's oldest and largest statewide retirement plans for public employees. We are proud to serve you and thank you for your work to make Pennsylvania great.
New members can use this website to learn about your retirement benefit, particularly some choices you need to make when you're first hired. Active members can run estimates to see how your retirement benefit grows as your years of service and salary change. Members who are getting ready to retire can read about payment options and get a check list for your counseling session. Retired members can get duplicate tax forms and click through to the Pennsylvania Employees Benefit Trust Fund - the PEBTF - for more about your health care.
