Who We Are

The Municipal Employees' Retirement System (MERS) of Michigan is a public nonprofit organization serving municipalities and their employees all across the state. We were created by the Michigan Legislature in 1945 with one, simple goal: helping municipalities offer affordable, sustainable retirement solutions for their employees.

And while the times may have changed since then, our mission hasn't. We remain committed to providing quality employee benefit services to our members. Today, we proudly count nearly 800 municipal members and 100,000 participants, many of them your friends and family, your neighbors, coworkers or constituents.

Who are we? We are our members. We are Michigan.

We are MERS.
