Counseling Appointments

When you are planning to retire, you will need to speak to one of our Retirement Counselors in order to complete the retirement application process. You can schedule a counseling appointment through our online Retirement Appointment Scheduler to discuss the following types of benefits:

  • Service Retirement
  • Ordinary Disability
  • Vesting Election

Counseling appointments to discuss service retirement are reserved for members who are qualified for service retirement or who will qualify for service retirement within 4 – 6 months.

Your effective retirement date cannot be earlier than the first day of the month in which you file a retirement application with SFERS.
