About Us

PERS Solutions for Public Services is an information resource for individuals and organizations from across Oregon working to advance cost-sharing reforms to the state’s pension system that reduce the impact of PERS on taxpayer budgets, ensure competitive retirement benefits and working conditions for public workers, and preserve and enhance vital public services.
