Preparing for Retirement

A few steps to take now if you intend to retire this year.

Here are a few steps to take now if you intend to retire in 2021:  

  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 Application for Service Retirement to help gather the necessary documentation. An incomplete form will delay the processing of your retirement benefit. 
  2. Review the slides and recorded version of the 2021 retirement webinar.
