State Employees Retirement System (SERS)
The State Employee’s Retirement System (SERS) is composed of three (3) tiers commonly referred to as Tier I, Tier II, and Tier IIA and all are defined benefit plans. As a new employee, you may only join Tier IIA (or for any employees who were hired on or after July 1, 1997). Tier IIA requires a 2% contribution. For more information on SERS, please visit the State Comptroller’s website.
