This online presentation is for eligible civil service and labor represented staff who want to learn more about their mandatory retirement plan. Eligible staff is covered under the General Plan in the Minnesota State Retirement System (MSRS).
If you are a faculty or staff member paid on a regular or continuing basis, you're eligible to save through the Optional Retirement Plan and the Section 457 Deferred Compensation Plan. These two voluntary retirement plans allow you to contribute through payroll withdrawal automatically. Learn more about these two plans and your investment options.
