READY TO RETIRE?

 

Employees are encouraged to meet with an Employee Benefits staff member (see Contact Us) to prepare for retirement. A retirement preparation meeting usually lasts about an hour and will review CalPERS retirement, payout of leave accruals, and insurance options.

A timeline on the steps of retirement can be found in the CalPERS publication Planning Your Service Retirement.

CalPERS recommends employees submit their retirement application 60-90 days before their retirement date; therefore, it is advisable to meet with Employee Benefits staff member no less than 90 days prior to retirement. 

There are three ways to apply for retirement:

  • Complete the application with a Monterey County Employee Benefits staff members
  • Complete an online application for retirement at www.my.calpers.ca.gov or mail a completed paper version of the applications to CalPERS.
  • Meet with a CalPERS representative at a local CalPERS office to complete the application

To approximate their pension upon retirement, employees may use the CalPERS Retirement Estimate Calculator online or complete and mail the Retirement Allowance Estimate Request to CalPERS.
