Colorado’s PERA manages more than $5 billion in assets for the state’s 95,000 public employees. It offers defined-benefit and defined-contribution plans to its members.
Some PERA members have the option to choose a defined-contribution plan instead of the defined-benefit plan. Additionally, PERA allows all members to save money toward retirement in optional 401(k) or 457(b) plans.
Empower is based in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado.
