Lincoln University provides vested staff employee retirement plans through the Missouri State Employees Retirement System (MOSERS).
MOSERS is a “defined-benefit retirement plan" that can be either contributory or noncontributory for all eligible staff employees. A defined benefit plan is one that requires a member to be vested (work a set number of years in a benefit-eligible position) and it provides a set benefit (based on salary and credited service) for life once a member meets the age and service requirements for retirement.

Lincoln Employees that are employed under the classification of federal employment will be covered through the Federal Civil Service Retirement System. Lincoln University contributes approximately 12% of the employee’s base salary.
