Mission Statement

The Retirement Systems office administers the City’s two defined benefit pension plans: the City of Grand Rapids Police & Fire Retirement System and the City of Grand Rapids General Retirement System.

A 7-member Board of Trustees, comprised of Member Trustees, Citizen Trustees, and one Employer Trustee, oversees each retirement system.

Due to the recent emergency order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the office will be open by appointment only from Wednesday, November 18, 2020 through Friday, March 5, 2021. We will continue to check mail a few times each week during the closure. Questions can be emailed to info@grpensions.org.
