Public School Employees Retirement Credit

If you have been a member of the Public School Employees Retirement System (PSERS) and your duties have changed so that you are now a manager or supervisor and are now eligible for membership in TRS, you may be eligible to establish credit for service rendered in a public school system prior to the date you became a member of TRS.

To establish prior service with TRS your employer must submit a completed Certification of Georgia Service form. Your cost to purchase PSERS service is based on the salary you earned during the years of service sought to be established and will include the applicable member and employer contributions that would have been paid to TRS, plus interest compounded annually to the date of payment.

Before PSERS service can be purchased with TRS, you will be required to withdraw your funds from PSERS, meaning you will no longer have service credit with that retirement system.
