Arizona State Retirement
Regular employees working 20 hours or more per week must participate in the Arizona State Retirement System. The retirement benefit an employee receives depends on the number of years and months for which the employee receives retirement credit. Employees receive credit by making mandatory contributions to the plan. Long-term disability is provided through an employee’s participation in the Arizona State Retirement System. The long-term disability plan pays 66-2/3% of an employee’s monthly salary after he/she has been disabled for six months. For additional information regarding benefits with the Arizona State Retirement System, log on to their website.

The District contributes 6.2% of salary, while the employee’s portion is 4.2% of salary.
Employees are automatically covered by Worker's Compensation insurance through the district's current worker's compensation carrier. If an employee is injured in an accident arising out of and in the course of his/her employment, he/she is entitled to compensation.
