Upgrade Resource Center now available

Posted 18-Jun-2015

Editor's note [Oct. 1, 2015]: the date for the Plan 3 record keeper transfer has changed from Oct. 1, 2015 to March 1, 2016. As a result, the upgrade resource center is being updated to reflect the new implementation schedule.


This October, DRS is moving to a single record keeper for Plan 3 and the Deferred Compensation Program (DCP). Empower Retirement will be the record keeper for both Plan 3 and DCP. Empower has been the record keeper for DCP since 2010. The move to a single record keeper will position DRS to continue building innovative retirement resources for you.

DRS has a new Upgrade Resource Center to keep you informed every step of the way. As the upgrades progress, we’ll update the pages with any new information. To receive an email when new information is available, subscribe to the “Upgrade Resource Center” in the email updates list.

Plan 3 members can expect a mailed packet in late July with more information about the upgrades taking place.

If you have additional questions about the change of record keeper, call 800-547-6657, ext. 17062 or 360-664-7062, to reach a retirement specialist.
