MSRS Pension Plans

MSRS was established by the Legislature in 1929 to provide retirement benefits to State of Minnesota employees. MSRS administers multiple retirement plans that provide retirement, survivor, and disability benefit coverage for State employees as well as employees of Metropolitan Council and many non-faculty employees at the University of Minnesota and State universities and colleges.

MSRS covers over 50,000 active employees and currently pays monthly benefits to over 28,000 retirees, survivors, and disabled employees.
