Privacy Policy

The following is a privacy policy for APERS.ORG, the official website of the Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System, or "APERS," a public instrumentality created by Act 177 of 1957 as amended.

To fulfill its purpose and serve its members, APERS collects, maintains, and uses information about members and other interested parties. This website is one of the channels through which this type information may be exchanged. It is operated under the same scrupulous privacy policy as the agency as a whole. In short, APERS does not share personally identifiable information about its visitors and members with any individuals or entities, public or private, except as provided and required by law and as necessary to fulfill its mission and serve its members.

As an agency of the State of Arkansas, APERS operates under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act of 1967, A.C.A. § 25-19-101 et seq., and APERS observes the following principles regarding any information it collects that can be associated with a particular person or people:

  • The information collected should only be that necessary to provide the information or services sought by the requester, just as a person might provide such information when visiting a governmental office in person. The information collected is subject to the same controls and uses as that collected by governmental offices visited in person, again subject to the access and confidentiality provisions of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, §§ 25-19-101 - 25-19-107 or to other applicable sections of the Arkansas Code. You do not have to provide personal information to visit this website or download this policy.
  • APERS records various statistical data about the computers that visit the APERS.ORG site, including their numerical IP addresses, so that we can analyze the ways visitors use our website and develop better, more accessible services. In the course of serving our members, APERS may request personally identifiable information from them, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to our office.
  • APERS.ORG may publish links to various commercial websites that are not subject to the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. Visitors may wish to check the privacy statements of any outside sites and be cautious about providing personally identifiable information to them.

We invite you to contact the agency directly if you have questions about this privacy policy or if you think we have not followed it in some way. You may contact us by mail at the following address:
