FRS Eligibility and Enrollment

As a part-time or full-time salaried employee you are a member of the Florida Retirement System (FRS) and may enroll in either the FRS Pension Plan or the FRS Investment Plan. 

Exceptions

You have eight calendar months after your month of hire to make an active election between the FRS Pension Plan and the Investment Plan. If you do not make an active election by the end of the election period, there will be a default membership. If you are a member in all classes other than the Special Risk Class you will default to the FRS Investment Plan. If you are a member in the Special Risk Class you will default to the FRS Pension Plan. You will have a one-time second election to change membership plans during your career.
