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.

***In compliance with Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order, the office is closed. Retirees may continue to mail requests for address, direct deposit and/or tax withholding changes to the office. Mail will be checked prior to June 17, 2020 and changes received by that date will take effect for the June 30, 2020 payment. If you wish to scan your signed change request you may email it to info@grpensions.org for processing.***
