Retirement Option Reminder

The College and University Retirement Plan (CURP) became effective July 1, 2002, and is a non-contributory 401(a) defined contribution plan for education employees such as teaching personnel, instructors, assistant professors, professors, and academic administrators holding faculty rank. Full-time faculty members hired by UCM are automatically enrolled in CURP unless the faculty member was previously in MOSERS in which case they would be re-enrolled in MOSERS.

After participating in CURP for at least six years, you may elect to change from CURP to the Missouri State Employees Plan 2000 (MSEP 2000), which is administered by the Missouri State Employees Retirement System (MOSERS). For calculation purposes, the six-year period begins after you are initially employed in a position covered by CURP.

For more information regarding CURP and MSEP 2000, please call Human Resources at 660-543-4255 and request the Transferring from CURP to MOSERS brochure. This brochure provides a side-by-side comparison of the primary CURP and MSEP 2000 benefit provisions so you can make an informed decision. If you have any questions regarding MSEP 2000, you can contact a MOSERS benefit counselor at 800-827-1063.
