The following information details important MIP notes, dates and documents that you should carefully read before considering an investment in MIP.

Important Notes:

  • MIP is not FDIC insured.
  • MIP is subject to risk of loss.
  • MIP is not guaranteed by the state of Missouri or any other agency.
  • MIP will not increase or decrease your current or future pension benefit from MOSERS.

Important Dates:
