History

Effective July 1, 2011, in accordance with Indiana law, the Indiana Public Retirement System (INPRS) is established. INPRS will administer and manage TRF, PERF, the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Retirement Fund, the 1977 Police Officers’ and Firefighters’ Pension and Disability Fund, the Legislators’ Retirement System, the Judges’ Retirement System and the State Excise Police, Gaming Agent, Gaming Control Officer and Conservation Enforcement Officers’ Retirement Plan. INPRS will also oversee three non-retirement funds including the Pension Relief Fund, the Public Safety Officers’ Special Death Benefit Fund and the State Employees’ Death Benefit Fund. Each of the current funds will remain separate and will be administered by the nine-member board of trustees of INPRS.

Legislators elected or appointed after April 30, 1989, participate in the Legislators’ Defined Contribution Plan. As a member of this plan, you and your employer are required by statute to contribute a specified amount to your Legislators’ Retirement System (LRS) account. You must contribute 5 percent of your salary for your service after June 30, 1989. The salary used to compute contributions include the total of the following amounts paid to you by the state for performing legislative services in the year in which the amounts are paid, determined without regard to any salary reduction agreement established under Section 125 or Section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code: (1) Salary, (2) business per diem allowance and allowances paid in lieu of submission of claims for reimbursements (but excluding any allowances for mileage), and (3) allowances paid to officers of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The state also makes a contribution on your behalf each pay period. This employer contribution is determined by multiplying your salary for that year by a percentage determined by the INPRS Board and confirmed by the budget agency not to exceed the total contribution rate paid that year by the state to INPRS for state employees.
