Member Annual Statement Sorting Preference Between May and July, we send you Member Annual Statements to distribute to your employees. These will be sorted by registration number unless you request otherwise in your March monthly report. Refer to our February 9 email for more instructions. This alternative sorting service is not available for State agencies. Please email our Employer Services bureau if you have questions.
Retirement Online for Members Shutting Down April 1 Retirement Online, our online application that gives your employees who are Retirement System members access to their membership information, will no longer be available effective April 1, 2015. Rest assured, this will NOT disrupt the existing suite of Employer Online programs that you currently use for reporting, billing and salary listings. Later this year, we’ll introduce a new online program that will give members greater access to information and simplify the way they manage their retirement benefits. We’ll have more information on how you can help members open their new Retirement System online accounts in the coming months.

Partial Lump Sum Payments — Now Available for Certain County Positions Sheriffs, undersheriffs, deputy sheriffs and correction officers who file for service retirement are now eligible for partial lump sum (PLS) payments if they are covered by a plan that allows for retirement after 20 or 25 years of creditable service (regardless of age), but only if their employer adopts a resolution to offer this option. Please refer your employees to our PLS publication if they have questions.
