The Police and Firemen's Retirement System (PFRS)

The Police and Firemen's Retirement System (PFRS) is a defined benefit pension fund established in 1944. It is open to all police officers and firefighters appointed after June 1944. Enrollment of employees from municipalities in the PFRS is mandatory and a condition of employment. Certain State and county law enforcement job titles are also covered by the PFRS. However, if an employee in a county or State police or fire title does not meet PFRS eligibility requirements, PERS membership is required. The PFRS is maintained on an actuarial reserve basis. The PFRS Board of Trustees has the responsibility for the proper administration of the retirement system. All membership and retiree account records in PFRS begin with the number "03".
