Benefit Calculation

For simplicity, view your retirement benefit as pieces of a puzzle. The first piece we consider is your length of service. Then we calculate your high-five average salary. We take these two pieces and apply it to a benefit formula to determine your retirement benefit.

Other factors that determine your monthly benefit are the age at which you retire and the survivor benefit option you select.
