If you're considering retirement, you should contact PERSI for a retirement estimate approximately six (6) months ahead of your desired retirement date. Then contact PERSI approximately sixty (60) days ahead of the retirement date to request a retirement paperwork packet. PERSI needs all retirement papers returned no later than the 15th of the month prior to the date of retirement, with the exception of members who retire in September. Because each year they experience a high volume of September retirements, PERSI ask those members to have their retirement paperwork in by July 15th.
Just a reminder to please look at your list of Irregular Help and Work Study employees that are listed in I-Time and send through Personnel Record Cards for those employees who are not returning for Fall 2016 or who no longer work for your department.
