planning for retirement

Benefit Estimate & Counseling

A Benefit Estimate provides a projection of retirement benefits based upon a future retirement date, projected credited service and average annual earnings.

One to three years prior to retirement, members should request a Benefit Estimate by completing Form, Request for Retirement Benefit Estimate and hand-deliver, mail, or fax the form to the ERS, Attn: Member Relations Team.

The Benefit Estimate may take up to thirty (30) days to process and will be mailed to the address on record with the Commission's Personnel Office (unless otherwise indicated).

After receiving the Benefit Estimate, members should call the office to make an appointment for a One-on-One Counseling Session to review the estimate and discuss retirement options. Spouses or other interested parties are welcome to attend.
