Retirement Benefits

DPS offers an excellent retirement program administered by the Denver Public School Retirement System. The program is a defined benefit program and replaces Social Security for DPS employees.

New employees contribute to the Plan on a tax-deferred basis at the rate of 8% of their contractual salary. The District contributes to the Plan each year based upon the actuary's recommendation. The Plan is fully funded and among the most financially sound systems in the nation. Upon your appointment, you will receive "Retirement and You," a comprehensive description of the retirement program.
