Each quarter, your participating employees will have online access to a statement of the contributions and current market value of their Annuity Savings Accounts. They may also elect to have a statement mailed to their home. Annually, members will receive an invitation to review online INPRS’ records of wages and service credit. This invitation will be mailed directly to the member’s home address, so it is critical that every effort be made to keep the member’s address current in INPRS’ records. Members may update this information themselves by logging in to PERF Online.
PERF offers eight investment options from which members can choose to invest their ASA funds. To view or change investment options, members should log in to their PERF Online accounts to complete their investment direction elections. Or, they may call (888) 526-1687 to complete their requests via phone with a customer service representative. A member’s ASA is subject to market risk when his or her funds are invested in options other than the Guaranteed Fund.
The value of an investment in this fund can never decrease, regardless of the actual performance of the investments of the fund. It also can increase only at the rate set each year by the PERF Board of Trustees. Guaranteed Fund assets are invested according to the asset allocation of the Defined Benefit Plan as approved by the PERF Board of Trustees. Guaranteed Fund investments include bonds, large capitalization stocks, small capitalization stocks, and other types of diversified investments.
