NVPERS Pay Date – Schedule for Active Employees and Retirees

NVPERS active employees receive bi-weekly pay, while retirees get monthly pension payments on the fourth working day before month-end.


NVPERS caters to two distinct groups regarding pay dates: active employees and retirees. For active employees, there are bi-weekly pay periods, with paychecks landing in bank accounts on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.

If Wednesday falls victim to a holiday, the paycheck will be delivered on the previous business day. Retirees, on the other hand, enjoy a more predictable schedule. Their pension payments arrive on the fourth working day before the month’s end.

NVPERS Pay Eligibility

NVPERS pay eligibility depends on whether you’re an active employee or a retiree, so let’s break it down for each group:

Active Employees:

  • General Eligibility: You must be a classified employee of the State of Nevada in a position considered half-time or more (according to the full-time work week of the employer). 
  • This includes regular state employees, employees of certain public authorities and boards, and some elected officials.
  • Contribution Requirement: You must be enrolled in the PERS and have retirement contributions paid on your behalf by your employer. This is mandatory for most classified employees hired after July 1, 1991.
  • Earning Period: You must have worked during the relevant pay period to be eligible for that paycheck.


  • Retirement Eligibility: You must have met the vesting requirements for PERS benefits. This typically involves at least 5 years of service credit, but can be earlier depending on your specific circumstances.
  • Age Requirement: You must have reached the minimum retirement age based on your service credit and job category. This can range from 55 to 65 years old.
  • Pension Application: You must have submitted a completed application for retirement benefits to NVPERS.

NVPERS Payment Methods

NVPERS offers two primary payment methods for both active employees and retirees. Each method comes with its own set of advantages and considerations:

Direct Deposit:

  • Convenience: Payments are automatically deposited into your designated bank account on the designated pay date.
  • Security: Direct deposit reduces the risk of lost or stolen checks, offering greater security for your funds.
  • Speed: Funds are typically available in your account by the end of the business day on the pay date, potentially faster than paper checks.

Paper Checks:

  • Accessibility: May be preferred by individuals without access to online banking or who are uncomfortable using electronic payments.
  • Tangibility: Provides a physical record of your payment for budgeting purposes.

Setting Up Direct Deposit for NVPERS

Whether you’re an active employee or a retiree, switching to direct deposit for your NVPERS payments offers convenience, security, and faster access to your funds. Here’s a breakdown of the process for both groups:

Active Employees:

  • Contact your payroll office: This is the most straightforward approach. Your payroll office will have the necessary forms and steps specific to your employer.
  • Use your employer’s online portal: Some employers offer an online portal where you can manage your direct deposit information. Check with your payroll office for details and access.


  • Download and complete the Direct Deposit Authorization Form: You can find this form on the NVPERS website https://www.nvpers.org/
  • Mail the completed form to NVPERS: Send the form to the address listed on the form itself.
  • Submit electronically (for retirees only): NVPERS now offers the option to submit the form electronically through their secure online portal. This option is currently available only to retirees and requires creating an account on the NVPERS website.
