|The Public Employees' Retirement System of Nevada (PERS) is a tax-qualified defined benefit plan created by the Legislature as an independent public agency to provide a reasonable base income to qualified employees who have been employed by a public employer and whose earning capacity has been removed or has been substantially reduced by age or disability. It was also created to make government employment attractive to qualified employees and to encourage them to remain in government service for such periods of time as to give employers and the people of the state the full benefit of the training and experience gained by the employees while employed in public service.|
|Your base pay, longevity pay, shift differential pay and
call-back pay are subject to retirement contribution. Overtime, terminal leave, pay
from secondary employment, and any other type of payment not specifically listed as
subject to retirement contribution within Chapter 286 of the NRS is not subject to
Employer Pay Contribution Plan (ERPaid)
Employee/Employer Contribution Plan
|PERS is governed by retirement law effective from the 75th session of the Nevada Legislature, 2009. Official legal reference may be found in the Nevada Revised Statues.|
|Each year, every active, contributing member of the retirement system receives a statement regarding the amount of contributions he or she has made to the pension fund. The statement reflects the total contributions made as of December 31 of the preceding year.|
