The new APERS Member Self-Service Portal (MSS) allows you to take control of your retirement account.  You can view your current status, check your service credit, send and receive secure messages, add or change beneficiaries, generate benefit estimates, apply for retirement benefits, and much, much more.  But first, you have to register your account.

To gain access to your MSS account, you have to establish your username and password. Start by clicking the LOGIN: MEMBERS button at the top of any page on this site.
