Annual Pension Calculation

The following calculation is based on the maximum retirement allowance payable and does not include any applicable reduction under an Optional Allowance.

Average Final Compensation multiplied by the benefit multiplier multiplied by Creditable Service
= approximate annual pension amount

Annual Pension Calculation Example:

A Group II member who had at least eight years but less than ten years of Creditable Service as of January 1, 2012 who retires with 21 years of Creditable Service at age 46 with an Average Final Compensation of $40,000:

Annual pension calculation ages 46 and older:
$40,000 multiplied by 2.4% = $960 multiplied by 21 years = $20,160
