Elevated Third and Colorado PERA Launch Redesigned Website

Happy couple in their golden years

Elevated Third Provided UX/IA Strategy

Elevated Third is proud to have collaborated with Colorado Public Employees' Retirement Association (PERA) in the launch of their new website, https://www.copera.org.

PERA provides retirement and other benefits to more than 500,000 current and former teachers, State Troopers, snowplow drivers, corrections officers and other public employees who provide valuable services to all of Colorado.  

Elevated Third assisted PERA in redesigning their website to increase the usability of the PERA website for its membership as well as the general public. Those who visit the site need to be able to navigate through vast amounts of content and resources quickly, and target the information that applies to them.  

Starting with PERA’s current site architecture and content, Elevated Third provided recommendations for a new information architecture that put the user’s needs first. A site structure with a clean interface was created that strategically organizes PERA’s content in an intuitive way. Elevated Third also made the PERA website responsive, which optimizes the site’s content for handheld devices.

About PERA: Colorado Public Employees’ Retirement Association was formed by the Colorado General Assembly in 1931 to provide retirement benefits to an array of public employees. For many members, PERA is a substitute for Social Security. PERA also provides additional voluntary programs such as life insurance, healthcare, and deferred savings options via both a 401(k) and 457 programs. To find out more about PERA, visit their website at https://www.copera.org.
