COVID-19 Related Closures
To safeguard public health and help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Division of Pensions & Benefits has temporarily suspended all non-essential services including reception desk service and in-person counseling at our Trenton offices.
Our counseling staff now offers a limited schedule of online video-based personal counseling appointments for members of the PERS, TPAF, PFRS, SPRS, and DCRP. Make an appointment online. If no appointments are available, be sure to check back as new appointments are opened on a regular basis.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may pose and ask for your continued patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation. Please also check back for updates and announcements.
