Annual Reports

As a component unit of the State of Missouri, MPERS is required to annually produce a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.  This report is intended to provide MPERS’ stakeholders with a thorough review of the System’s operations for the past fiscal year.  The material presented in these reports has been prepared in a manner intended to be useful and informative to MPERS’ members, the management of the MoDOT & the Highway Patrol, and the elected officials of the State of Missouri.

Actuarial Reports            

The basic financial objective of MPERS is to establish and receive contributions which 1) when expressed in terms of percents of active member payroll, will remain approximately level from generation to generation of Missouri citizens, and which 2) when combined with present assets and future investment returns, will be sufficient to meet the present and future financial obligations of MPERS.  In order to measure progress toward this fundamental objective, MPERS has annual actuarial valuations performed.  This link will take you to the last five valuations performed and experience studies.
