Here are a few steps to take now if you intend to retire:

  1. Download and complete a Retirement Application Packet. Read and review the forms and collect your required documentation. Refer to the retirement checklist in the Retirement Application to help gather the necessary documentation. An incomplete form will delay the processing of your retirement benefit. 
  2. Retirement Webinars are held in February and March. Find more information at
  3. Collect or obtain the required personal identification documents listed on the checklist. Missing documentation will cause processing delays.

  5. Check your most recent Member Statement by logging on to your myCTPF Member Self-Service Portal and confirm that your personal information is up to date. Address and demographic changes need to be made with your employer if you are still employed. Find more information at
