Thinking of Retiring?

If retirement is on your horizon, please contact MainePERS at least six to 12 months before your expected retirement date to begin the process of applying for retirement benefits.   

To get you started, MainePERS is pleased to present four new videos that provide an overview on frequently asked questions, including when and how to contact MainePERS about your approaching retirement, how to select a benefit plan, how benefits are paid, and when benefits may cover the cost of insurance.

You may also schedule an appointment for a retirement counseling session or attend a Pre-Retirement Informational Meeting

Planning on working after retirement? Then you will want to find out more about the requirements of retiring and returning to work.

We look forward to helping you make a smooth transition to retirement!
