Last Day of Work

Jun 29, 2018, 08:47 AM by MOSERS

I was told: When retiring. You MUST work your last day before retirement. I was told that you cannot use comp or vacation time on your last working day.

Just to clarify—your last day at work is your “termination date”. Your “retirement date,” when it comes to getting your benefits from MOSERS, is the date you put on your Retirement Application and it will be the first day of the month in which you start receiving retirement benefit payments. For example, if a member’s last day at work is January 31, their retirement date could be February 1.

Your retirement date must be the first day of the month. You will need to contact your Human Resources representative regarding if you need to be present on your last day of work.

Annual leave has no effect on your MOSERS benefit. Please contact your agency’s human resources representative to determine your agency's procedure for using annual leave prior to retirement.
