Getting Ready to Retire


Getting Ready to Retire

CCCERA staff are trained to offer assistance on the retirement process and beyond, but are not tax professionals or financial planners. Please consult with your financial adviser prior to making decisions that may affect your future security.

Retirement Planning

If possible, start planning five years ahead of your retirement date. This may seem like a long time, but preliminary planning gives you the opportunity to save vacation credits, purchase or convert any eligible service time, consider your estimated benefit amounts at possible ages, and decide at which age retirement will be most advantageous.

During the year prior to retirement, call CCCERA to request:

  1. A retirement benefit estimate, if needed.
  2. Attendance at a pre-retirement workshop.
  3. An individual counseling appointment.
