Kansas law requires that all eligible school employees must become members of KPERS. As an active member, you contribute 6% of your gross earnings to your KPERS account and your contributions earn interest annually. After five years of service, you are considered vested in KPERS and are guaranteed a retirement benefit, even if you leave employment.

Visit the KPERS Retirement Information Center for more information on KPERS Retirement.

To access your KPERS Annual Statement you need to log into your KPERS Member Account (first-time users will need to enroll as a new user).

If you plan to work for a school district or other KPERS employer after you retire, make sure you read the information on Working After Retirement.
