As a member of the Delaware Public Employees' Retirement System (DPERS) you are participating in a Defined Benefit Plan, and your retirement benefits are paid out to you regardless of market events. When you retired DPERS calculated your monthly pension benefit based on various factors such as years of service and salary, not investment results.
Requests for estimates and counseling sessions are suspended through September 30, 2014 so that Pension office staff may accommodate the large volume of new pension applications. Requests for estimates and counseling already on file as of 4/3/14 will be honored. Members may use the calculator(s), review pre-retirement information or obtain answers to Frequently Asked Questions by visiting the Office of Pensions website. Please feel free to contact our office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (302) 739-4208 or (800) 722-7300 if you have any questions.
Pre-retirement workshops are being held this Spring and Summer to provide information regarding Delaware State Employees' Pension Plan benefits. There is no cost or pre-registration required to attend these workshops. Individual retirement estimates will not be distributed at these workshops. Participants will learn how to prepare their own estimated benefit using the Pension Office website. Please click on the link below for workshop dates, times, and locations".
