MainePERS Lobby Operations

Our lobby is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and our Reception staff are available to assist you. Masks are required to enter the foyer and lobby and hand sanitizer is also available. Our foyer remains open for limited-contact drop-off of materials using our secure drop-box.

Although our lobby is open, we are not hosting in-person meetings. Instead, we are offering on-site videoconference meetings with staff. The Reception staff will guide visitors through that process.

The best way to speak with a member of our staff or schedule a videoconference meeting is to contact us by phone at 207-512-3100 or send an email to [email protected].  Please include your name and phone number.  For security reasons, please do not include your Social Security number in your message.

We continue to encourage the use of mail or secure email for most of your MainePERS business.  We are providing postage paid return envelopes to make it easier for you to use the mail and secure email if you prefer electronic communication. If you would like to send sensitive information to us via email, please use our secure email system, Zixmail, at the following link:

Thank you for staying safe and helping us to stay healthy so we can be here for your retirement needs.
