Defined Benefit Plan Overview
Because it is so essential to plan for retirement early in life, this section of the website aims to give you enough information about your pension so that between your pension, social security, and personal savings, your retirement is all you hope it will be.
Administration of the Plan
The operation of Michigan's State Employees' Retirement System is controlled by the State Employees' Retirement Act (Public Act 240 of 1943), as amended. Any changes to the act require passage by the Michigan Legislature.
