Greetings, Gonelong, and welcome. You wrote:<<I was able to find some info about the STRS. It seems to be basically a pensiontype plan based upon years of service, salary, etc. and offers other benefitslike health care, disability, survivor benefits, etc.PERS (still researching)The ARP providers given seem to be little more than the ability to invest in some annuities. Doh!Now what? The Fool doesn't seem to have much on the STRS vs. ARP. Canyou at least point me in the right direction?>>The reason you won't find anything on TMF regarding those terms is because they are unique names to the plans available to your wife, not the type of plan. You need to explore further to learn the plan type (ie., defined benefit, defined contribution, 401k, 403b, 457, etc.) It sounds like the ARP is a 403b plan, and the STRS a defined benefit plan (probably referred to as a 401 plan). Once you learn what type of plan, then you can read brief overviews of them in my Foolish Retirement Plan Primer at http://www.fool.com/Retirement/RetirementPlanPrimer.htm.Regards..Pixy
