The Legislative Retirement System (LRS) of the
Public Employees' Retirement System

Technically, members of the Legislative Retirement System (LRS) are a subcategory of the Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS).  Because the conditions that affect LRS employment—namely periodic elections, are unique to enrolled members ofthe State legislature, there are special provisions for retirement that need to be outlined separately. 

For additional information about the pension and benefits associated with a Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS) membership, please consult the PERS Member Handbook. In addition, the PERS Legislative Retirement System Addendum provides information about membership and benefits specific for PERS LRS members.
