State Universities Retirement System (SURS) Plan Choice Webinar

Before selecting a SURS plan option or enrolling in an optional retirement plan, participate in a Plan Choice Webinar. These sessions explain the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) options and provisions.

Employees who are eligible for SURS must make a lifetime, irrevocable plan decision within their first six months of employment. However, employees who are interested in the SURS Self-Managed Plan (SMP) option should be aware that employer contributions to the SMP do not start until a plan selection is made. Therefore, it is in your best interest to participate in a Plan Choice Webinar and designate your SURS selection as soon as possible.

When participating in the Plan Choice Webinar, you will need:

  • A computer with speakers.
  • Something to write with and scratch paper.
  • The packet of retirement materials you received in the mail from SURS. This material is mailed to you approximately two weeks after your first day of employment and, therefore, you may not have it to take with you to this session.

You may enroll for the Plan Choice Webinar online, or by calling SURS at 800-275-7877. Registration is required.
