Plan 3 Education is offered by the DRS Education & Outreach (E&O) team. Education offered includes:
The Department of Retirement Systems is postponing the Oct. 1 effective date for transferring recordkeeping services for PERS, SERS and TRS Plan 3 members. Under the revised schedule, Plan 3 record keeping will transfer from ICMA-RC to the new record keeper on March 1, 2016. Because of this postponement, we have cancelled the Plan 3 “blackout” that was scheduled for Sept. 23–Oct. 2 (a blackout is a period when customer access to Plan 3 accounts is limited to allow for the transfer of data to the new record keeper). A new blackout period will be scheduled for February; we’ll advise you of the exact dates once they’re finalized. For additional information, visit www.drs.wa.gov/upgrade.
