Attend a "Choosing between ASRS and ORP" webinar

Nov. 6, 2019

Classified staff who transition to University Staff will have a one-time opportunity* in February 2020 to either remain in the Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS) or switch to the Optional Retirement Plan (ORP).

Join us for a webinar on November 20 to learn about the ASRS and ORP. We will discuss:

  • How retirement benefits are determined
  • Vesting
  • Distribution options
  • The impact of transitioning from ASRS to ORP
  • When and how to make your choice

A recording of the session will be posted on the UCAP website. A PDF comparison of the ASRS plan and the ORP is available now.   

*Appointed Professionals have already had the opportunity to select either ASRS or ORP and will not have the option to change retirement plans.
