Public Safety Officers Retirement System (PSPRS)

Public Safety Personnel Defined Contribution Plan: Starting in July 2018, newly hired corrections and detention officers who work in county jails, municipalities and state prisons, will receive retirement benefits through them. This is a 401(a) plan in which member and employers contribute towards members’ retirement.

This reform closes CORP to new members from corrections and detention positions. The 401(a) tax-deferred retirement plan administered by Nationwide Retirement Solutions and managed by the PSPRS Defined Contribution Committee provides retirement benefits to all Tier 3 corrections and detentions officers.

It is important to note that CORP will remain open for new hires of Arizona’s Administrative Office of the Courts’ probation and surveillance positions. Those hired into these positions will be given a choice of retirement benefits from the following:

  • A pension provided by CORP
  • A 401(a) account with member contributions and employer match
    • 7 percent default member contribution rate*
    • Full matching employer contribution of 5 percent of member’s salary

* State law permits 401(a) Defined Contribution plan members to make a one-time and final decision to lower their employee contribution rate as low as 5 five percent or to increase it to produce as much as the maximum annual contribution amount limits permitted under state law. 

Below is a video overview of the reforms and a basic summary of the Tier 3 member benefits.
PSPRS created a secure portal for employers to download the three animated videos that explain the Tier 3 reforms for the corrections community and the Administrative Office of the Courts.

Click HERE to download the videos via our secure portal, which are also available on our PSRPS YouTube page
CORP and PSRPS reform videos are available to all employers of corrections, detention and probation/surveillance officers – even those with social media website filters that prevent accessing YouTube while on work computers.

The first video covers the basic reforms that go into effect in July, while the second and third videos take deeper dives into the Tier 3 401(a) Defined Contribution plan for corrections/detention officers and the retirement benefit choice that surveillance and probation officers hired by the Administrative Office of the Courts.

We hope you find these videos useful and share them with colleagues and your employees.
