Retirement

 

The Employees' Retirement System (ERS) administers the following plans:

  • ERS Old & New Plans
  • Georgia State Employees' Pension and Savings Plan (GSEPS)
  • Georgia Defined Contribution Plan (GDCP)
  • Peach State Reserves

As of January 1, 2009, all eligible new hires become members of GSEPS.

Full-time employees of participating departments and agencies are required to become members of ERS as a condition of employment. (Full-time employment status is defined as 35 hours per week for a minimum of nine months a year.)

Part-time employees of participating departments and agencies are required to become members of ERS as a condition of employment enrolled through the Georgia Defined Contribution Plan (GDCP).

The State of Georgia also sponsors an attractive supplemental retirement plan - Peach State Reserves. The program consists of a 401(k) and 457 plan. For employees who are covered under the Georgia State Employees' Pension and Savings Plan (GSEPS), contributions to the 401(k) plan are matched by the state.
