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. Schedule your counseling session to take place within six months of your desired retirement date. Log in to mySFERS to access the 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.
