How is my pension calculated?

Your pension allowance is a defined benefit based on three factors. Your age at the time of retirement, your years of creditable service, and your high three consecutive years’ salary. The Retirement office will calculate estimates for you upon request, and can explain the actual factors used in determining the benefit.
