Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
Eligible Linn County employees are required to participate in the Iowa Public Employee Retirement System (IPERS) defined benefit plan. This plan is designed to supplement Social Security and private savings. Both the employer and the employee contribute to the plan. Contribution rates vary by member classification and may change on July 1 of each year.
New employees should receive a welcome packet in the mail within two months of your first paycheck. If you didn't receive a welcome packet or didn't keep the letter, call IPERS at 800-622-3849 for assistance.
