Elected Public Officers Retirement System
The Elected Public Officers Retirement System (EPORS) was enacted as a retirement system for elected state officials (Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Legislators).
It became effective January 1, 1976. It was repealed by referendum in the 1976 general election; however, the Alaska Supreme Court subsequently ruled that those elected state officials who served in 1976 were entitled to continue to be covered under the terms of the system.
All other elected officials may be covered under the Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS).
