Welcome to PERS


The Public Employees’ Retirement System of Mississippi (PERS) p​roudly serves the state of Mississippi by providing retirement benefits for individuals working in state government, public schools, universities, community colleges, municipalities, counties, the Legislature, highway patrol, and other such public entities. These retirement benefits not only help recruit and retain a strong public workforce in Mississippi, they help stimulate local economies in every county in the state and help reduce the need for social assistance.

Due to extremely low water pressure, PERS has closed for the afternoon

​Water pressure in the PERS building is currently unable to support facilities use due to city water line breaks. Because of this, PERS has closed for the rest of today, Oct. 18.

Please, watch this space for updates. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause those we serve. 

Thank you.
