Retirement Systems Alert:
Planning for Retirement (PfR) provides information to help you understand how your County pension is calculated and how decisions you make with regard to years of service can affect your annual pension income. Once you understand how your retirement benefit is calculated, you will be able to calculate your own estimated benefit amount using variable salary information and years of service and make adjustments with regard to current or projected accumulated sick leave balances. Information will be provided to help employees understand the differences between Normal Retirement and DROP participation and things to consider when making your decision.
These sessions also provide information about the County benefits you may be able to keep when entering retirement (i.e. health, dental and life insurance) and how length of service can increase your health benefit subsidy. These information sessions are not open to employees who are currently participating in the DROP.
