As a first-time, full-time employee of the state of Indiana, you have 60 days from your date of hire to choose between two retirement options – the traditional PERF Hybrid plan (defined benefit plus Annuity Savings Account) or the Annuity Savings Account Only (ASA Only) plan. If you do not choose within 60 days, you will default into the Hybrid plan. Your choice, or default, is irrevocable so please make an informed decision.
To help you decide what plan might be best for you, please review the resources below. Our counselors can help explain the differences between the two plans; however, they cannot provide a recommendation on which plan to select. You may want to consult your tax advisor for specific financial impacts on selecting one plan over another.
