Retirement Planning

In planning for your retirement, the first step is for you to decide on a retirement date. To help with this decision, please use our Benefits Calculator to get estimated pension projection for your specific retirement date. Calculate as many different retirement date scenarios as you wish as no information is saved on our website. Also, you can check the Membership Information module on your membership date or years of service. Once you have decided on a retirement date and it falls within the first and last day to file your application, contact ERS on Oahu or any of our Neighbor Island offices. The ERS staff will assist you on application filing process.

Please note that the ERS must prioritize all estimate requests as resources must address the upcoming retirement dates first. Your assistance is needed to use the Benefit Calculator so we can service our members who have filed their application to retire first.
