Eligible PERS 2 members can switch to PERS 3 in January

Each January, certain members of Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) Plan 2 have the opportunity to make a permanent transfer to PERS Plan 3. You are eligible to transfer to Plan 3 if you are an active PERS Plan 2 member who began service before Sept. 1, 2002, and you will earn service credit in January.

Use the resources on the DRS website to help you decide if transferring to Plan 3 is right for you. To transfer from Plan 2 to Plan 3, complete a Member Transfer form and return it by mail or email by Jan. 31, 2023 to:

     King County Benefits, Payroll and Retirement Operations

     401 Fifth Avenue, CNK-HR-0230

     Seattle, WA 98104


If you transfer to PERS Plan 3, you should see the change on your pay advice in Feb. 2023.
