At MERS, our plans always include finding the right fit – for our members, for our business, and for our staff.

We’re the Municipal Employees’ Retirement System (MERS) of Michigan, an independent, professional retirement services company that was created to administer retirement benefits for Michigan municipalities on a not-for-profit basis. We manage retirement plans for municipal employees statewide. We’re also a fun, hardworking group of people dedicated to driving innovation and delivering excellent service. We offer an outstanding compensation and benefits package, a collaborative, flexible, inclusive environment, and meaningful, rewarding work.
