During the 2019 Special Session of the General Assembly, House Bill 1 was passed. Because the bill had an Emergency clause it took effect immediately upon the Governor's signature on July 24, 2019. House Bill 1 has two key provisions:
- Set the employer contribution rate at 49.47%, retroactive to July 1, 2019 for fiscal year 2020, for KERS quasi-governmental agencies.
- Established a one-time voluntary cessation window for KERS quasi-governmental agencies.
KRS has published a general information guide which answers
some of the most Frequently Asked Questions from both our Quasi-Governmental
Employers and their employees. Please note that an employer requesting an
estimate shall pay all costs (actuarial and administrative) of the estimate.
Please refer to the guide for details.
