CALCULATE YOUR PENSION

Hired 1988 or later

Members hired 1988 & later- Regular Pension (Age 60 with 20 years credited service)*

  1. Add your highest 48 months' salaries.
    • Use budgeted salaries and acting time only. Do not include overtime.
  2. Divide by 48 to calculate your average monthly salary.
  3. Multiply by 50%.
  4. The final answer is your monthly pension benefit before the Social Security offset at age 65.

Example:

  1. Let's say the sum of your highest 48 month salaries is $127,000.  
  2. Divide this sum by 48 to make $2,645.83.
  3. Multiply this by .5 to make $1,322.91.
    • This is your monthly pension benefit before the Social Security offset at age 65. 

For information about the Social Security offset at  65, see our Retirement Benefits section.

Here is the calculation as an equation:

(Sum of highest 48 months' salaries) / 48 x . 50 = your monthly pension benefit before the Social Security offset at age 65.
