Employers may schedule a visit from a PERS representative to provide staff with on-site presentations about retirement procedures, use of forms, and the effect of legislation on retirement law, policy, and regulations. These representatives also offer one-on-one sessions with the employer, as needed. The PERS representatives are available by appointment to accommodate each employer's schedule.
To schedule a visit from a representative, call 601-359-3589 or 800-444-7377 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
PERS Employer Training
PERS Employer Training is held throughout the year to provide information to personnel who are responsible for the administration of benefits and the reporting of wage information for covered employees.

Determining a Member's Eligibility
PERS-covered employers are responsible for properly assessing whether an employee is eligible for membership in PERS. However, PERS has provided a convenient questionnaire in MyPERS Reporting to help in this determination. Employers are also encouraged to reference PERS Board Regulation 36, Eligibility for Membership in the Public Employees' Retirement System of Mississippi (PERS), and PERS Board Regulation 37, Eligibility of Student Employees for Membership in Retirement Annuity Coverage.
