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.
