(Section 381-b)

Withdrawing Your Contributions and/or Your Membership

If you are a Tier 5 or 6 member and you leave public employment with less than ten years of credited service, you may end your membership and withdraw your accumulated contributions (with interest compounded at 5 percent per year). To do this, you should file the Withdrawal Application (RS5014) PDF icon no earlier than 15 days after you leave public employment.

Once you have ten or more years of service credit, you cannot withdraw from the Retirement System. Any contributions you are required to make must remain in your account. When you reach age 55 (or age 63 for Tier 6 members who are off the payroll), you will qualify for a retirement benefit. It is up to you to apply for your retirement benefit at that time.
