5 Retirement FRS Pension Plan cont.  Payment is a guaranteed monthly check for life beginning at retirement (normal retirement age is age 62 or 30 years of service) and automatically increased each July by a 3% cost of living adjustment. Other options provide for continued payments to your surviving beneficiary/joint annuitant.  Upon reaching normal retirement age, you are eligible for DROP (Deferred Retirement Option Program) Allows you to ‘retire’ without terminating employment for a maximum of 5 years Your monthly pension benefit accumulates in the FRS Trust Fund, and earns interest compounded monthly to an effective annual rate of 6.5% There are several DROP account payout options available when your DROP participation ends

6 Retirement FRS Investment Plan  The Investment plan is a defined contribution plan  There is no cost to you  The University contributes a percentage of your salary (9% for Regular Class members) into an account set up in your name  You select where to allocate contributions from among an assortment of investment funds  You are vested in your account after one year of creditable service.  Your retirement benefit is based on your account balance, which equals: employer contributions plus investment returns minus expenses, fees, and losses

7 Retirement FRS Plan Choice Period  As a new employee, you must choose one of the two FRS plans.  You have until the end of the 5 th month following your hire date to enroll, otherwise your Plan Choice defaults to the FRS Pension Plan.  After your Choice period, you will have a second opportunity during your career with FRS to switch retirement plans
