No prior membership in any DRS retirement plan - PERS

Employee Hired Into a PERS Position

The employee has the option to become a member of PERS Plan 2 or PERS Plan 3.

A new member has 90 calendar days to make an irrevocable Plan Choice, or they are defaulted by the employer into PERS Plan 3, rate option A, investment program SELF.

An employee employed in a PERS eligible position should initially be reported in PERS Plan 2, unless the employer receives the Member Information Form (MIF) from an employee choosing PERS Plan 3 before the first payroll cutoff. If reporting for the first time, be sure to include the begin date, even if it is the same as the Plan Choice Date.
