The Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS) was created to provide retirement and other benefits for Arizona employees. It includes faculty and employees of the state's political subdivisions who signed membership contracts. Maricopa Community Colleges is a Plan employer of the Arizona State Retirement System and all employees of MCCCD become members of the System once eligibility requirements are satisfied.

  • Employees are required to make contributions to the ASRS Plan if they work for twenty hours or more per week for twenty weeks or more in a fiscal year.
  • For Faculty, one load hour is equivalent to two clock hours.

Arizona State Retirement contributions will automatically be deducted from your paychecks. The state retirement withholding rate may change each fiscal year. Rates can be found on the ASRS web site
