Important notice: PERS processes many written benefit estimate requests in retirement date order, with the earliest retirement dates first. Average processing time is currently 1-3 months. However, estimate processing time may vary from member to member, as each account is different, so we are unable to advise exactly when your request will be processed.
PERS is currently processing all OPSRP written estimates received in July 2019.
Please note that if your PERS account involves a divorce, your estimate may take longer to process.
PERS can only provide written pension benefit estimates for retirement dates within the upcoming 24 months.
can also create an estimate online at any point in your career by logging in to your Online Member Services (OMS) account. Please note: Estimates created through OMS do not yet reflect the changes in SB 1049 and may not be accurate for members earning over $195,000 for retirement dates on and after January 1, 2020.
If your PERS account involves a divorce, you
should request a written benefit estimate. OMS cannot correctly calculate a benefit estimate on an account with a divorce award.
Please note that an estimate from PERS only includes information on your OPSRP retirement benefit. You can use the IAP Disbursement Forecaster to estimate your Individual Account Program (IAP) distribution at retirement.
