  • Message from Director Paul Matson Re: COVID-19 Service Levels

    March 23, 2020

    With the significant economic and social disruption caused by the ongoing pandemic, I want to personally provide you with the following information regarding the continuity of services that the ASRS will be providing at this time. In summary - I do not expect any significant service disruption.

    The only services that have changed is the service delivery model for meetings:  all group meetings, individual meetings, Board and Committee meetings have moved from "in-person" to a "telephonic" or "web-based" platform until further notice.

    Our goal at this time is that our significant efforts and actions will enable you to focus on other, more pressing, aspects of your life at this time - as the benefits that you receive from the ASRS will continue. We are focused, so your services and benefits will continue uninterrupted. The ASRS has an active and tested continuity of operations plan in place which should enable us to provide the service levels our members have come to expect with limited, if any, degradation of service. We will update this message should there be any actual or expected degradation of services.

  • Market Impacts on ASRS

    March 10, 2020

    With recent significant losses to financial markets attributed largely to uncertainty over the spread of the coronavirus, ASRS members may be concerned about the impact to the ASRS benefit plan.

    The ASRS manages a diversified investment portfolio which is comprised of equities, real estate, credit, and bonds. Unlike personal retirement accounts, such as a 401(k), ASRS retirement benefits are set by a formula and not by the ups and downs in the investment market.

    Here’s a summary of market impacts to ASRS members:
