Capitol As the 127th First Regular Session of the Maine Legislature comes to a close, MainePERS is reviewing the newly enacted laws and will soon be posting more complete information about changes that impact our members, retirees and/or employers. 

We are aware that questions exist about some bills from the recent session taking effect.  Our current understanding is that these laws have been enacted and, absent a final determination to the contrary by an authorized official, MainePERS must implement the laws as enacted.  However, we suggest that you continue to watch for updates regarding the laws in question taking effect.


Included in these laws is PL Chapter 334 (L.D. 86), which establishes the 2015 cost-of-living adjustment (“COLA”) for eligible retirees from State-sponsored retirement plans at 2.55%. The PLD Plan COLA is not affected by this law.  The PLD COLA will be set by the Board of Trustees at their August 13th meeting based on the June 30, 2015 Consumer Price Index for Urban Consumers (CPI-U) of .1%.

 Whatever your age, it's the right time to talk about retirement!
