MOSERS is pleased to provide a Member Profile Report that presents a summary of our 2019 member data. This information is intended to give users a better understanding of average state employees working in or newly retired from active service. Additionally, this report offers a side-by-side comparison of FY19 member data with data from FY15 and FY17.

  • Nearly 90% of the retirement benefits that we pay, goes to Missouri residents, which has a significant and consistent positive economic impact for both our state and local communities.
  • As of June 30, 2019, 47.35% of active state employees are members of the MSEP 2011, which means they contribute 4% of pay toward their future retirement benefits.
  • The number of active state employees has decreased by 8.8% over the past ten years.
  • Service and salary data such as this is important because MOSERS uses the following three-part formula to calculate retirement benefits: Final Average Pay x Multiplier x Credited Service = Monthly Base Benefit.
