The Latest from PERA

View All

There are more than 110,000 PERA members who are receiving benefits from PERA (retirees, disabled, survivors of deceased members).

“I’ve been a PERA member for 40 years. I didn’t first realize the importance of PERA in the beginning of my career, but now I do.”

About 65% of PERA’s revenue in the past 20 years is attributed to investment earnings.

96% of the revenue PERA receives goes directly to member benefits, 3% is refunded to members, and less than 1% used for administrative costs

PERA is the largest public pension plan in Minnesota serving more than 480,000 members.
