Ready to retire?

Please be prepared to spend some time reviewing the information in steps 1 and 2 below. This is your retirement—it is important that you understand both how your benefits are calculated and the retirement application process. Your MTRS benefits will most likely be one of your most valuable assets in retirement, and your decisions will affect the rest of your life.

Before you begin the retirement process, however, be sure to estimate the amount of your retirement allowance under the three available options and determine that what you may receive is appropriate for your personal and financial situation.

Note: For information on applying for disability and termination retirement benefits, see Retiring from the MTRS.
