Tacoma Employees' Retirement System

The Tacoma Employees' Retirement System (TERS) is a defined benefit plan covering employees of the City of Tacoma and other Member Public Agencies. It is funded by employee and employer contributions, as well as investment returns.


Retirement Planning Sessions

The Retirement Planning Sessions that were hosted by TERS during August and September 2019 have successfully concluded. We were very pleased with the employee turnout at the lunch and learn format. Our next planning sessions will be scheduled during the first quarter of 2020. Stay tuned for the dates and times.
