PERS costs college students

…And it’ll cost students even more next year.

According to Jay Kenton, vice chancellor for finance and administration for the Oregon University System, the “projected share of an individual student’s annual tuition going toward university staff retirement benefits for the 2012-13 year was $849.”

Kenton’s projection for the 2013-14 school year, should the Oregon Legislature implement no PERS reform, is $1,100.

It’s Time For Real PERS Reform. Our Students Deserve It.
