Generally, most civilian employees belong to the New York City Employees' Retirement System (“NYCERS”) pension plan. However, most non-pedagogical employees in the Department of Education (“DOE”) belong to the Board of Education Retirement System (“BERS”). Some of the exceptions in the DOE are staff nurses, health workers, and education analysts who belong to the Teachers' Retirement System (“TRS”).
