The previous Colorado PERA member contribution of 8.75% ended June 30 and increased to 10% beginning July 1. The change will be reflected in July paychecks.

PERA is mandated to regularly announce progress toward its funding goal each June and will continue to communicate all upcoming automatic adjustments. Employees can visit the Colorado PERA website or contact MSU Denver Human Resources for more information.
