Welcome To the Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System

your retirement system

The Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System was created by Act 177 of 1957. The system originally provided only for the retirement of state employees but through the years has added county employees, municipal employees, college and university employees, non-teaching public school employees, and other non-state employees.

APERS’ mission is to provide income to retired members, to survivors, and to disabled members of the system. To this end, the system prudently invests all contributions received, monitors reporting by participating employers, maintains records, and disburses monthly benefit checks to all those entitled.
