More Information

The SURS Traditional Pension Plan is the historical SURS defined benefit retirement plan. It was the only SURS plan available until 1998. It provides lifetime retirement benefits and a survivor benefit at no additional cost. However, the separation refund feature is not as generous as the Portable Pension Plan.

The Traditional Pension Plan is also the default plan assigned to members who fail to choose a plan within six months of certification.

For details see the Traditional Pension Plan Member Guide.
