PUBLIC EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT SYSTEM

Mt. Grant General Hospital is a member of the Public Employees Retirement System. The retirement is paid at 100% by the Hospital. The contribution to PERS is 28.00% of employee earnings (effective 07/01/2015). After five (5) years of service, the employee is vested. If the employee works for a non-PERS Employer making $10.00 per hour and worked 80 hours in a pay period, a deduction for Social Security for 4.2% of the earnings would be taken which would equal $33.60. Full-time employees enrolled in PERS do not have a deduction for Social Security and the Hospital makes a deposit into their PERS retirement account for 28% of earnings, which in the above scenario would amount to $224.00. The PERS website can be accessed at www.nvpers.org to view personal account information and benefit estimates. PERS also carries a beneficiary benefit. (Please see the PERS Regular Member brochure.)
