Benefits - Retirement

Adams State University provides an attractive Retirement Program to Faculty, Administrative exempt and Classified employees. The Department of Human Resources serves as your campus liaison with the Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA) and the three investment companies: TIAA-CREF, Valic, and Fidelity, which compose the Optional Retirement Program (ORP) for Faculty and Administrative exempt employees.

The Department of Human Resources located in Richardson Hall, room 127, will assist all new employees at Adams State University in completing the necessary application process to participate in the Retirement Programs.

Classified staff must enroll in PERA within the first 30 days of employment. Faculty and Administrative employees who have at least one year of PERA eligible employment may enroll in PERA or select from one of the Optional Retirement Programs.
