MANDATORY RETIREMENT AND SERVICE AFTER AGE 65 FOR CERTAIN GROUP 2 AND 4 MEMBERS

 

Group 1
There is no mandatory retirement age for Group 1 members.

Groups 2 and 4
Pursuant to Chapter 415 of the Acts of 1987, most members of Groups 2 and 4 are authorized to remain in service after age 65, but some Group 2 and Group 4 members must retire on the last day of the month in which they attain age 65, the maximum retirement age for their positions.

How will I know if my position is excluded from the mandatory retirement law?

Other than police officers, fire fighters, and correction officers, most Group 2 and 4 employees may continue in service beyond the mandatory retirement age of 65.

Notice from Retirement Board
Not less than four months before your sixty-fifth birthday, your retirement board must determine whether your position is excluded from the mandatory retirement law. Your retirement board will present you with written notification of its determination.

If the board determines that you are not eligible to continue working, the board will notify you of the date on which you will be required to retire.

Will retirement deductions be taken from my regular compensation if I work after age 65?

Yes. Deductions will continue to be taken from your regular compensation. Your retirement allowance will be based upon your age at retirement, and the amount of creditable service you have earned by your retirement date. It will also include regular compensation earned after 65, if it represents your three highest earning years.
