We encourage you to schedule a Ready-to-Retire Counseling Session 3-6 months before your retirement date. Your counseling session will take place in the 90-day period before your retirement date. During your counseling session, ACERA will advise you on the retirement benefits, payment options, and benefit deductions available once you retire. You will also complete a retirement application and other forms. Note: The counseling session alone does not initiate the retirement process. In order to retire, you must submit a retirement application to ACERA within the 90-day period before your retirement date.
Complete the form below and an ACERA representative will contact you to schedule a counseling session.
