Military Affairs Retirement Plan

The Military Affairs Retirement Plan covers military affairs personnel on active duty. The plan provides retirement, survivor, and disability coverage.
 

To be a member of the Military Affairs Plan, you must file a notice to MSRS' Executive Director stating that you choose to be a member of this plan. You must contact MSRS to request the Plan Selection Form. The form must be filed with MSRS within 90 days of your start of employment. Your election is irrevocable.

Once retired, you will receive a monthly retirement benefit for life with potential post-retirement increases. Depending on the option you select at retirement, your survivor(s) may be eligible to receive a lifetime survivor benefit upon your death.


Employees covered by the Military Affairs Plan contribute to Social Security. Monthly benefits from the Plan are paid in addition to Social Security benefits.


This retirement plan does not offer loans, hardship withdrawals, or in-service withdrawals.
