Eligible MSRS pension benefit recipients will receive an annual benefit increase in January 2024. Annual benefit increases are determined by Minnesota statute.

The increase is prorated the first year after retirement and is based on the number of full months a retiree was retired during the previous fiscal year. After the initial prorated increase, all future increases will be the full benefit amount.
