GSEPS

GSEPS members of ERS are automatically participants in PSR.

The PSR 401(k) plan is a core component of your retirement benefit. Saving at least 5% in your PSR 401(k) plan means you receive the full 3% employer match.

GSEPS members should visit the GSEPS section of this site, as it includes information about the PSR 401(k) plan.

Integrated Statement FAQ

1. Why did I get a statement that only shows my ERS pension benefit?

If you do not have a balance in the PSR 401(k) or PSR 457 plan, then no Social Security estimate or PRS information was included on the statement. Your statement will only show your ERS pension benefit.
