If you leave state service before you are vested, there are several options available to you.
If you leave state service after you are vested, you may leave your retirement contributions in the system and receive a state pension at age 55.
If you are not yet vested but believe you will return to state service, you can leave your contributions in the System. Benefits of leaving your contributions in the System include protecting your contribution rate from future increases and no loss of state service.
If you choose to leave your contributions in the System, please be sure to update any change of addresses for you and your beneficiaries with the Board so that we can contact you from time to time to update you on the status of your account.
Alternatively, you can have your accumulated retirement contributions "rolled over" or transferred directly into a tax-qualified IRA or other qualified retirement vehicle. Under certain circumstances, there may be a penalty for early withdrawal.
You may receive a refund of your accumulated retirement contributions, with 20% deducted for federal taxes. If you take a refund, you lose all rights associated with membership. There may be additional tax penalties if you take a direct refund of your contributions. You may wish to consult with the IRS or your tax advisor for specific information and guidance.
If you return to state service after taking a refund, you may have to satisfy certain service requirements before you are eligible for particular retirement benefits. You would not be eligible to receive a retirement allowance until you have been in active membership service for at least two consecutive years following the start of your new employment with the Commonwealth unless you meet one of the applicable exceptions.
If you entered service after January 1, 1984, you are eligible for a refund of the interest credited to your account according to the following schedule:
No interest will accrue to your account after two years from the date of your separation from employment.
