An Important Update for Our Members

PASR is dedicated to providing a safe environment for both our members and employees. While our Association will remain open to serve our membership during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is our goal to operate in compliance with governmental directives and with the health of our members and employees in mind.  For this reason, our in-house operating hours will be limited and the majority of our staff will temporarily be working remotely.  Our phone line is currently being answered by a recorded message; however, our staff will be checking their voicemail remotely and returning urgent calls daily. We encourage our members to reach out by email or through the contact form on our website ( for the fastest response.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding.


Using the strength of its large membership, PASR has negotiated attractive group rates on a number of products and services. PASR endorses services and products as a value added benefit to its members and does not receive financial compensation for our endorsement of any product or service.

PASR serves the needs of ALL persons who retired from the public schools of Pennsylvania.

PASR is an association comprised of members who are all retired employees of the public schools of Pennsylvania. We are former teachers, administrators, counselors, nurses, secretaries, aides, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, maintenance staff—in short, anyone who is now receiving a pension from the Pennsylvania School Employees Retirement System (PSERS). PASR’s mission is To serve others in need and help one another enjoy retirement.

PASR was established in 1937 and is a pioneer of nonprofit voluntary membership organizations nationally—having helped establish both the National Retired Teachers’ Association in 1947 and the nation’s largest senior organization, AARP, in 1958. Currently, there are approximately 70 local PASR chapters. Most are found throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; however, chapters are located throughout the country.

PASR is in the process of proposing new legislation to get a COLA passed for our members and all PSERS Annuitants.  To view the latest information on our efforts, please click here.
