New ASRS Member? Welcome!

We have revamped our New and Prospective Members page! Located in the Members tab, we designed this page to help introduce you to who we are, guide you through the myASRS account registration process, learn more about your member benefits, understand ASRS contributions, and get answers to commonly asked questions. On the New and Prospective Members page, you'll learn about a few primary benefits available to all ASRS members. Topics include your Lifetime Pension Benefit, Long Term Disability, Retiree Health Insurance, and Survivor Benefits.

Do you have questions about your member contributions? The ASRS funds the benefits we offer our members through member and employer contributions. The New and Prospective Members page provides links to a variety of information and educational videos to help explain how the contribution rate is determined, how often it fluctuates, and what benefits it helps provide.

The biggest benefit your contributions provide is a possible retirement benefit. While retirement may not be on your radar right now, it's important to understand what you're working towards – a guaranteed lifetime monthly benefit! This is just one of the benefits you can learn about on the New and Prospective member page. 

As a new member, we want to welcome you to the ASRS and help you along your journey. If you would like to stay better connected to us and other ASRS members and retirees, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube! We often highlight commonly asked questions and feature videos and articles aimed at all our members, from newly hired to mid-career through retirement.
