District Retirement Process
- The employee must call PERS for their pre-retirement eligibility and an estimation of benefits when they start to consider retiring.
- The employee needs to give the Principal a notice of at least 3 to 6 months of their retirement date.
- The employee will have to submit a letter of resignation to the Principal as such date.
- The Principal will then submit a retirement form and the letter of resignation to the Personnel office for approval (Personnel and Superintendent's signatures); it will go on the board from there.
- The retiree will visit the Personnel Office for PERS documents that must be signed to start the claim process. I will give them a copy of the PERS Retiree Handbook.
- There are at least 3 to 5 documents that needs to be signed like the one below. Form 9A SRVC, Pre-Application for Service Retirement Benefits
- The employee will meet with Patsy Stanley, and she will verify and communicate their unused, uncompensated, and personal and sick days as well as projected unreported gross earnings.
- From there, the Personnel Director will verify all calculations and send their paperwork to PERS. Afterwards, PERS will send the employee documents to review and sign. The employee will follow up with Personnel and Mrs. Joyce Branch per their retirement selections and a continuation or not of their State Health Insurance post-retirement.
Retirees will be asked to start with the Principal if they come by Personnel first, which makes sure you are aware of their desire to retire and to allow the Principal/District to start planning for their replacement.
I encourage all employees to follow this retirement process. If there are any questions, please call me directly @ 662-644-0679.
