Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA)
Membership in PERA is mandatory for non-elected public employees who meet position eligibility requirements set by Minnesota statute.
You and your employer both contribute to PERA on your behalf. In 2019 employee contributions are 6.5% of eligible wages and employer contributions are 7.5% of eligible wages.
Taxes on Your Contributions
Federal and State income taxes on PERA contributions have been deferred for many years. Thus, most of your PERA benefits (or a refund unless placed in another tax-deferred program) will be taxable when they are received.
