Member MY PERA and Employer ERIS web sites are currently unavailable for access. We hope the sites will be restored to full service by mid-day Thursday. Please check back for status updates.

Welcome to PERA


We are pleased to welcome you to PERA. As a PERA member, you are a part of Minnesota’s largest public pension plan.

As a PERA member, you contribute a percentage of every paycheck to PERA. In exchange, we provide you a lifetime benefit. Unlike most retirement plans today, traditional pension plans like PERA—also known as defined benefit or DB plans—provide you with the security of a lifetime benefit.

On this page, you’ll find the resources you will need to plan your retirement—whether it is quickly approaching or years away.

Attend a conference or workshop

Attending an educational conference or workshop is a great way to learn about your benefits. We have three opportunities:

1. Group conference: 60 minutes

2. Individual Conference: 45 minutes

3. Preretirement Workshop: all day

In every program, we review your benefit options, how to apply for your retirement benefit, and show features of MY PERA.
