MainePERS Lobby Operations

Effective Monday May 24, 2021 our lobby is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  Reception staff are available to assist you. Masks are required to enter the foyer and lobby; 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, the majority of our staff are still working remotely, so we are not hosting in-person meetings. 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. Our secure email system, Zixmail, not only allows MainePERS representatives to securely send/receive email that contains confidential or sensitive information to you, but also enables you as a member to generate secure email to MainePERS. If you would like to send this type of sensitive information to us via email, please use the following link:

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