Retirement

Retirement Plans

  • Florida Retirement System (FRS) Pension Plan
    • A defined benefit plan that pays vested participants a lifetime monthly benefit using a formula based on years of service, an average final compensation of the highest fiscal years of earnings, and a percentage value while working for an FRS-covered employer. Vested Pension Plan members who reach their normal retirement date may participate in the DROP.
  • Florida Retirement System (FRS) Investment Plan
    • A defined contribution plan where participants decide how to allocate the money in their account among available investment funds.
  • State University System Optional Retirement Program (ORP)
    • A defined contribution plan where participants decide how to allocate the money in their account among available investment funds. The benefit depends on the amount of money contributed and its growth over time.
  • Voluntary Savings Plans
    • Employees can participate in voluntary savings plans via payroll deductions. Employees may contribute to both a 403(b) plan and the 457 Deferred Compensation plan, up to each plan’s separate IRS limit. These plans are designed for long-term retirement planning purposes and therefore employees should use other methods to save for immediate or short-term expenses.
