Governor Parson Signs LAGERS' Employee Contribution Bill Into Law

LAGERS employers will soon have more flexibility with their employee contribution election thanks to legislation signed by Governor Parson this week.

House Bill 1467, which the Governor signed on July 13, will extend LAGERS employers' options for the employee contribution election from the current 0% or 4% employee contribution to a 0%, 2%, 4%, or 6% employee contribution election.

“We are excited to be able to further enhance the flexibility of the LAGERS system so that every local government employer has the best tools possible to attract and retain the best public servants to serve in our communities,” says LAGERS Executive Director Bob Wilson. 

The new law will also permit governing bodies to make a separate employee contribution election if their employer has non-social security-covered employees who are covered under a different multiplier than their social security-covered employees.
