Deductions From Monthly Benefit Payments

May 19, 2020, 15:45 PM by MOSERS
I would like particular deductions currently coming out of my paycheck to keep being deducted from my retirement benefit. Is this allowed? If yes, who do I contact to keep this continuing?

If applicable, the following deductions may be withheld from your monthly benefit payment:

  • Missouri income tax as specified on your W-4P (tax withholding form)
  • Federal income tax as specified on your W-4P (Without this form, we are required to withhold federal taxes as if you are married claiming three allowances.)
  • MOSERS optional life insurance premium
  • Aflac insurance premium
  • Missouri Consolidated Health Care Plan (MCHCP) premium
  • Department of Conservation’s health and life insurance premium(s)
  • Miscellaneous deductions such as vision and dental insurance and Missouri State Employees Charitable Campaign (MSECC) contributions

With Aflac and MSECC, you must contact those organizations directly, then they will send us a notice to withhold the appropriate deductions. Otherwise, whether you retire online, or on paper, we will provide you with the required forms for these deductions. Be sure to review our Retirement Guide, which explains why and how to complete various forms at retirement.
