Part Three: Request an Estimate

Request an Estimate

Request Estimate If:

  • You are within 18 months of retirement eligibility
  • Only 1 per 18 month period, unless your circumstances change
  • Maximum projection 18 months into future

We see a lot of people who fail to request an estimate when they first become eligible.

An estimate does many things besides giving you pension amounts.
