  • Annual Benefit Statement

    Nov 24, 2020, 4:01 PM By MOSERS
    I was wondering if MOSERS had some type of packet where we could put all of our MOSER info (retirement, deferred comp and life insurance) all in one packet so that if we die our family would know everything they need to get the benefits. 

    This is a great question! We would encourage you to see your Annual Benefit Statement, as it displays all of your current benefit information in one document.

    We send this annually in March to all active members but you can access it anytime by logging into myMOSERS. Here, it is available to print out or save as a PDF, which you can share with trusted loved ones or family members.

    Retirees get their Annual Benefit Statement each year on the anniversary of their retirement date or BackDROP date. We send benefit statements to vested former state employees once every 5 years.

  • Reduced Benefit

    Mar 17, 2020, 4:16 PM By MOSERS

    I am in MSEP11 and have vested.  I may leave service at 65, but not retire until my normal retire age of 67.  Will I still receive a reduced benefit?

    No, your benefit will not be subject to reduction if you are vested, leave service, then retire at age 67. (The reduction you are referring to is for “early retirement” and is a reduction of ½ of 1% (.005) off your base benefit for each month your age is younger than normal retirement.)

    However, if you continue working until you are 67, then your benefit would ultimately be higher because you would have more service. When you apply for retirement, your base benefit will be calculated using a formula that takes into account your final average pay and your credited service. For a more in-depth look at which option may be best for you, we encourage you to use our Comparison Calculator to compare various scenarios over time or contact one of our benefit counselors.

    Benefit counselors are available:

    Monday - Friday
    8:00 am - 12:00 pm
    1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
