News State Retirement Board Updates Pension Estimate Calculator

The Massachusetts State Retirement Board (MSRB) has updated its Pension Estimate Calculator for members of the Massachusetts State Employees’ Retirement System (MSERS).
  • Massachusetts State Retirement Board

Previously, there were two separate Pension Estimate Calculators. One for members who entered service BEFORE April 2, 2012, and a second one for members who entered service ON or AFTER April 2, 2012. 

These two calculators have been combined into one and the new calculator is now published live on the MSRB website.

Please note:

  • Actual pension amounts can ONLY be calculated at the time of retirement under M.G.L. c.32.
  • If you are a member of the State Police Department, a judge, a correction officer seeking a "20/50" retirement, or would like an estimate for a Section 10(2) (termination allowance) or disability retirement, please contact the retirement board for more information. 
  • If you are within 120 days of your retirement date or have already separated from employment, contact the State Board of Retirement to speak with one of our retirement counselors and start planning your retirement.
