The West Virginia Consolidated Public Retirement Board (CPRB) celebrated the 25th anniversary of its creation at its board meeting on July 20, 2016. The agency was created by the State Legislature in 1991, with an effective date of July 1, 1991.
At that time, the five plans administered by the CPRB included the Public
Employees Retirement Board (PERS), the Teachers Retirement Board (TRS), the
Teachers Defined Contribution (TDC), the Judges Retirement Plan (Judges) and the
Division of Public Safety (State Police Plan A). The State Police Plan A was
closed in 1994; however, the State Police Plan B was created simultaneously. The
TDC plan was closed in 2005, but the state created the Emergency Medical Service
Retirement System in 2008 and the Municipal Police and Firefighters Retirement
System in 2010.
