KPERS Non-School Employees in Their Year of Service
State and local employees hired July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009 will become immediate members July 1, 2009. They will not need to finish a full "year of service" for membership. That means someone hired June 30, 2009, will only work one day before becoming a member while someone hired July 1, 2008, will work the full year.
Employees Beginning Employment on or After July 1, 2009
All employees who begin employment in a KPERS-covered position on or after July 1, 2009, will become immediate members on the first day of employment. The KPERS information system will automatically designate the proper Tier to place the employee.
