Benefits Change Connection
Public Employees Retirement Fund
Participant options include:
Participants who have met the age and service requirements may elect to initiate their Pension benefit.
Participants who have at least 10 or more years of PERF service, but who have not met the age requirement, may leave their Annuity Savings Account with PERF until they reach the required age to begin their Pension benefit.
Participants with less than 10 years of PERF service, that is, no "vested" rights to the Pension benefit, may request a distribution of their Annuity Savings Account.
Summary of actions the participant must take:
- Determine if the participant has any vested Pension benefit (see above).
- Choose whether to leave the Annuity Savings Account with PERF or to ask for a distribution of funds.
- To withdraw the Annuity Savings Account balance contact PERF.
- Notify PERF of any change of address by completing the appropriate PERF form or by accessing the participant account at www.in.gov/inprs.
- Continue to make
investment fund allocations as long as the Annuity Savings Account
is with PERF.
