You are eligible to retire at any age after completing 25 years of creditable service.
With 25 years of creditable service, you will receive a retirement benefit of 50 percent of your FAS. If you are at least 55 at retirement and an alternative regular plan would provide a greater benefit, the greater benefit will be paid.
If you made annuity savings contributions, your benefit will also include an annuity based on those contributions and the interest they earned.
The Application for Service Retirement (RS6037) must be on file with the Office of the State Comptroller at least 15 days but not more than 90 days before the date of your retirement. The 15-day filing requirement is waived if you are over age 70 at retirement.
