Retirement Resources


Planning to retire in June and still need help?

  1. Download and complete a Retirement Application Packet. Read and review the forms and collect your required documentation. An incomplete form will delay the processing of your retirement benefit.
  2. Review the 2019 Retirement Seminar Presentation. CTPF offered retirement seminars in February and April. You can find a copy of the presentation here.
  3. Schedule a Personal Benefits Consultation Session with a Member Services Representative. Members can schedule an individual retirement counseling appointment Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Call Member Services, 312.641.4464, or email, to schedule an appointment.
  4. Know your health insurance options. Employer-sponsored group health insurance coverage will end at retirement. Choosing a post-retirement health insurance plan for you and your eligible dependents is one of your most important retirement decisions. Now is the time to research your options and to decide on a plan so your coverage continues without interruption. CTPF does not automatically enroll you in any post-retirement health insurance coverage.
  5. Make sure you follow your employer’s retirement process and file all necessary forms and documentation. Your employer has a specific process to follow in addition to the CTPF application. CTPF cannot process your retirement benefits until your employer provides confirmation of your resignation.
  6. Stay informed. If you haven’t already done so, sign up for email updates at and like us on social media.
