Apply for retirement

We realize that retiring is a significant life event and want to make the process to apply for your MSRS retirement benefit as easy as possible.

MSRS is unable to accept your application for retirement more than 60 days prior to the retirement benefit start date you indicate on the form.

You will receive your first benefit payment approximately six weeks after your retirement date. Please plan accordingly. The first payment is typically higher because it includes retroactive payments back to your benefit start date.
