[Posted on 10/13/2016 at 10:00 AM]

The contribution rate for retirement benefits provided by the MSEP has been determined to be 19.45% of covered payroll for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2017.

Pensions Support Our State and Local Economy
The money the state contributes to the retirement system also supports the state and local economies. Nearly 90% of MOSERS retirees and their dependents remain in Missouri, spending retirement dollars on housing and goods and services here. The average MOSERS pension benefit for new retirees is $15,187 per year. Each $1 paid in benefits has $1.41 in economic impact and traditional pensions are the most economical way to provide reliable financial security, according to a 2016 report by the National Institute on Retirement Security.
