What is the ERS?

The ERS is the Commission’s primary retirement plan for its employees. The ERS was established July 1, 1972, and has been periodically amended over time. It is a defined benefit plan, qualified in accordance with the IRS Code, Section 401(a). Today, the ERS consists of five defined benefit pension plans: Plan A, the original plan; Plan B, for non-police; Plans C and D, for park police; and, Plan E, for non-police and appointed officials hired on or after January 1, 2013.
