  • Retirement Due Dates

    Jun 6, 2018, 8:23 AM By MOSERS

    I am planning to retire the end of this year, with my retirement date of 1/1/19. How far in advance do I need to submit my retirement forms?

    You can submit your retirement application as early as 4 months (120 days) prior to your retirement date. However, there are specific due dates required—for example, if your retirement date is January 1, your Retirement Application is due no later than November 30 and the Retirement Election Form is due no later than December 31st.

    The Ready to Retire page on our website is a one-stop shop for all of our retirement resources. We encourage you to go to our website, log in to your Member Homepage, and retire online as soon as you have gathered information and made your decisions. Before your benefit payments can begin, you must complete the 2-step retirement process. This process, which involves your submission of several important forms, allows MOSERS to provide you with relevant, individualized information needed to make informed decisions regarding your future benefit payment. Use the Retirement Guide to assist you. This summary of the retirement process includes a detailed explanation of each form as well as a Smart Start Checklist of information you should have readily available when you apply. The Retire Online video also has helpful tips to lead you through the process.

  • Using Leave After Applying for Retirement

    Jun 1, 2018, 3:30 PM By MOSERS

    Once you submit retirement papers with a date for retirement are you allowed to take any annual or sick time?

    Yes. Check with your agency’s human resources office about your specific guidelines for annual and sick leave accrual and usage before retirement. Please be aware that MOSERS converts each block of 168 hours of unused sick leave into a month of service credit to be used in your retirement benefit calculation. So, any usage of sick leave near your retirement date may affect previous benefit estimates you have received. Annual leave has no effect on your MOSERS benefit.
