Attention: Annual Compliance 2022 Training


Attention: Reemployed Retirees 

Individuals who have retired from the university (or other State of Mississippi agency) are required to complete the “Reemployment of PERS Service Retiree Certification/Acknowledgement” (PERS Form 4B) each fiscal year. The employee is responsible for submitting the PERS Form 4B to Human Resources no later than 5 days after the hire date or reemployment date. Please note, if you select option 2-B and are unsure of your average compensation at retirement, you will need to contact PERS for that information.

For the protection and safety of all, Human Resources will continue working by appointment only.  If you are a current employee and need to speak with someone in HR, we ask that you make contact via phone or e-mail with the person you would like to meet with first and make arrangements for a visit, if necessary. 
If you are not sure whom to speak to, contact our main line at 601-9792015 or you can email our department email address at 

Please note a mask is required in order to visit Human Resources.
