Florida Retirement System (FRS)
Florida Retirement System (FRS) is an employer and employee contributory system and membership in the FRS is compulsory. In other words, your employer pays the required portion of your retirement contributions necessary for you to earn service credit towards a future retirement benefit. The employee pays a 3% employee contribution towards your retirement benefit.
FRS offers two retirement plans for employees to choose from:
- FRS Pension Plan
- FRS Investment Plan
FRS Pension Plan
FRS Investment Plan
This is a traditional retirement plan designed for longer service employees. It pays a guaranteed monthly benefit based on service and salary at retirement. Employees qualify for benefits after six years of service.
This plan was designed for a more mobile workforce. The benefit is based on how much money is contributed to your account and how well that invested money grows over time. Employees qualify for benefits after one year of service.
