NPERS implemented its Member Services department (call center) in June 2000 to
assist plan members with telephone inquiries and during personal visits at the Retirement
Office. Member Services' staff consists of four retirement specialists, each trained in
all of the plans administered by NPERS. Member Services provides many
important one-on-one personal services to members, which allows other agency staff to
process member's written request and applications in a more timely and efficient manner.
When you call NPERS, you are greeted by an automated attendant system.
Please listen carefully to your options as they change from time to time.
Common questions that may be answered over the telephone include:
- basic information and facts about your plan;
- status reports on inquiries or applications you have submitted to NPERS;
- questions concerning correspondence you have received from NPERS;
- assistance in using Ameritas pension access line (for State and County members);
Common requests for information which cannot be completed over the telephone are:
Members Services strives to serve all plan members by assisting them in understanding their retirement plan and in helping them plan for a successful retirement.
Inquiries about Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) (State, County, and Deferred Compensation
Plan members only). For security reasons, PIN information is not available by telephone.
Our staff can provide you with a form to assign yourself a new PIN number or you may download this
form from our website.
- Inquiries about Beneficiary Designation - These inquiries may not be completed over the telephone.
The most expedient way to ensure your beneficiaries (for all plans) are listed as you want them, is to
allow our staff to send you a new form. The completed form, when returned to NPERS, will supercede any
previous beneficiary designations.
