Ready to Retire?

Congratulations! You’ve reached an important milestone: retirement. 

Retirement is an exciting time in your life. IPERS is here to help you understand your options and apply for your pension benefits.

First, make an appointment

If you are thinking about retiring in the coming months or years, we highly recommend making an appointment with an IPERS retirement counselor in person or online.

Additional helpful resources

Preparing for Your Retirement booklet, tailored to your membership group. Most members are Regular members.

Would you like to get a head start on your application? Here are a few things to think about.

  • Log in to My Account to see an estimate of your projected benefits.

  • Consider making a service purchase. Learn how you can make a rollover into IPERS from another qualified retirement plan or use personal funds.

  • Decide on the person, people, or organizations you plan to name as your beneficiary on your retirement application.

  • Consider your payment options. You select your option on your benefit application. If you are married, your spouse needs to consent in writing to your choice.
