Retirement Benefits

The SFERS Pension Plan is a tax-qualified defined benefit plan funded through employee and employer contributions and investment earnings. SFERS benefits provide you as a retired member, with post-employment income during your lifetime and to your qualified survivor(s).

Retiree benefits are based on your Age at Retirement, your Years of Service Credit, and your Final Compensation as of your effective retirement date. Retirement benefits are paid as a monthly allowance on the last day of each month.
