The Public Employees’ Retirement System Plan 2 (PERS 2) is a traditional, defined-benefit pension plan — when you meet plan requirements and retire, you’re guaranteed a certain monthly income for the rest of your life. After working at least five years, you’re eligible to receive your retirement benefit starting at age 65.
