Retirement Calculator

An updated retirement calculator for the traditional plan has been added to the pension pages on the county’s external website (a calculator for the Hybrid Plan is in development). The calculator is to be used for estimation purposes only. It is not intended to reflect actual retirement calculations. HR should be contacted at 770.528.2534 to obtain detailed retirement information. Please see the pension document for options that may affect your retirement calculation.

Request For Pension Estimates

The Request for Pension Estimate form has been updated due to the volume of pension estimate requests received. HR will send estimates to employees within 21 business days from receiving the request.

Also, if you are nearing retirement remember there is a 90-day notice required to commence retirement benefits. This becomes even more important for those planning to retire at year-end.
