Hi, all!

I am a teacher in Ohio moving to Colorado. I have a couple of job interviews set up, and I am wondering if anyone knows about the teacher retirement system in CO. I've tried looking online, but can't seem to find much info on moving into CO with experience from another state.

I currently have 9 years experience in OH and am wondering how that would transfer (if at all!) to CO. Has anyone else accepted a teaching job in CO with experience from another state? Also, are teachers retiring in CO with 30 years? 35 years?

Thanks for any and all info!!

Thank you! Has anyone experienced transferring states to teach? Was the process complicated?

I started teaching in CT and moved to Colorado. I decided to leave my retirement in CT in CT. It wasn't enough to buy years into Colorado, I could buy up to four years here if I wanted, but at $15-20K a year, I figured I'd work a year or two longer.

If I was in your position, I'd likely buy several years, but definitely contact PERA about that.

I think in many cases your retirement years don't transfer with you, unfortunately, but you can collect retirement eventually from both systems if you are vested in each. Do check with PERA about specifics of your situation.

You will need to leave your retirement in Ohio. I have moved states several times as a teacher and each time I left my retirement in that state. You may be able to "buy back" some years in Colorado, but you will need to consult with the teacher retirement system in Colorado to be sure.
