Attached is the Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP) as implemented by KPERS. It is a way to continue working after your regular KPF retirement date and accumulate benefits in a separate manner. This program is available for Kansas Highway Patrol and Kansas Bureau of Investigation personnel ONLY at this time. Although this program was initially due to sunset in 2020 it has been extended to 2025. This may be something that is extended beyond state employees in the future, so you may wish to be kept aprised of the developments.
John Pinegar, our lobbyist, sent us this information and continually updates the state e-board on matters such as this.
