New Mexico PERA is on Social Media

Are you part of the 81% of Americans who have a social media profile? If so, be PERA’s friend! PERA now has a Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram page. On these pages, you will not only learn more about PERA, but also about retirement planning, budgeting and investment tips, and other pension-related information. These platforms will not only be accessible to our members, retirees and beneficiares, but also to the general public.

In addition to providing some words of wisdom, PERA hopes to become “Twitter-pated” by eventually transitioning to a more electronic presence and save a few trees.

By having a social media presence, PERA is optimistic that these social media platforms will provide an opportunity to connect with you. It will also make it easier for you to voice your questions, opinions and concerns. PERA strives to improve the customer service experience and this will be another resource to contribute to that goal.
