Social Security and SURS

Full- and part-time employees at SIUE with an employment period of 4.5 months or more will contribute to the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) instead of Social Security. If you have held previous employment that included Social Security deductions, please visit the Social Security Administration website to learn about the Windfall Elimination Provision and how it works.
