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 to discuss the following types of benefits through our online Retirement Appointment Scheduler:
- — Service Retirement
- — Industrial Disability
- — 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 12 months.
Your effective retirement date cannot be earlier than the first day of the month in which you file a retirement application with SFERS.
