IPERS Law & Legislation

General Resources and Information

The Legislature and the Governor are the plan sponsors; IPERS is the plan administrator.  As administrator, IPERS cannot make changes to the plan, or advocate for or against changes.

Rules and regulations for administering pensions for public employees are governed by federal laws enacted by Congress and state laws (Iowa Code) passed by the Iowa Legislature.

Iowa Code

Chapter 97B contains current Iowa law governing IPERS. The law defines who participates in IPERS, what benefits are provided, and contributions paid by employees and employers.
