Annual DROP interest rate determination – Each February, the APERS board of trustees determines the rate of interest to be credited on contributions to Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP) accounts for the upcoming fiscal year. At the February 15 meeting, the board adjusted the rate to 3% effective July 1, 2023. This rate affects current DROP participants who have not exceeded the 10-year participation limit. We mail annual DROP statements in August of each year, and DROP participants can view the current rate on their statement.
