  • New Money Purchase Factors Effective Date Set

    Thursday, 02/19/2015

    The SURS Board of Trustees recently set the effective date for changes to the Money Purchase factors as January 4, 2016. The changes to the factors are a result of a recent actuarial experience study which recommended a reduction of the assumed rate of investment return and updated mortality tables to reflect an overall increased life expectancy. An actuarial experience study is required by state statute at least once every five years.

    The changes to the Money Purchase factors will NOT affect:

    • Current annuitants
    • Survivor benefit recipients
    • Self-Managed Plan members
    • Members who began participation on or after July 1, 2005
    • Members whose benefit is highest under the General Formula calculation

  • Extended Winter Holiday/Closure
    Schedule for 2014

    Thursday, 10/16/2014

    President Baker, following consultation with the  University Council, Operating Staff Council, Supportive Professional Staff Council, the  divisional Vice Presidents, and other area representatives, has approved an extension of the 2014 university winter holiday closure schedule to  include Friday, January 2, 2015, as a Scheduled Closure Day. This will allow for an additional one-day extension of the  winter closure period resulting in a total closure period of 12 days, extending from the close of business on Tuesday, December 23, 2014, until operations resume on Monday, January 5, 2015. This measure is consistent with the continuing efforts of President Baker and the university community to identify operational and utility cost savings.
