State Employees' Retirement Board

The Pennsylvania State Employees' Retirement Code entrusts the authority and responsibility of running SERS to an 11-member board that meets eight times per year.

Board Structure

Six members, one of whom must be a SERS retiree, are appointed by the Governor. Two members are appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Pennsylvania Senate and two members are appointed by the Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. The Pennsylvania Treasurer serves as an ex-officio member of the SERS board during his or her term of office. In total, five board members must be active members of SERS, two of whom must have at least 10 years of service, and one must be an annuitant. The Governor selects the chairman of the board from among its members.

SERS board members adhere to an ethical conduct policy and annually file statements of financial interest with the Pennsylvania Ethics Commission.
