Unpaid Leave and Your Pension
If you are out on unpaid leave for any extended time due to illness, maternity, etc. make certain you request an unpaid leave of absence. Only board approved unpaid leaves will be eligible for purchase of that time through the pension.
Date of Birth on File
It's never too early to verify that the pension has proof of your date of birth on file - you can check this information now prior to retirement. If you forward copies of your birth certificate to the pension, be sure to write your membership number/social security on the copy provided.
Letter of Intent
Be sure to submit your request to the Board for approval of your retirement. At least 6 months prior to the retirement date, submit your application to Trenton for processing.
If you are a veteran, be sure to submit your documentation to the pension.
