Additional Information

Permissive Service Credit Transfers

Participants who are members of the State Employees Retirement System, or other qualified state defined benefit plan, may transfer funds from this plan directly to the state pension plan  for purposes of purchasing service credits. These transfers may be made only if the state pension accepts such transfers.

Domestic Relations Orders

Participants who have received a Domestic Relations Order from a court should present the Order to the Plan Administrator for review. If the Order is accepted by the Administrator, then they will direct the affected provider(s) to implement the Order.

If the Domestic Relations Order is not acceptable to the plan, then the Administrator will return the Order to the participant with recommendations for corrections, with the intent that the Order will be revised to a form that is acceptable.
