How much money will I get when I retire?

Post Retirement Benefits

For a regular service retirement, your benefit amount will be based upon:

  • your plan formula (i.e. Plan 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,or 7);
  • your years of service;
  • your final average compensation;
  • your age at retirement.  

The most accurate way to estimate your future retirement pension benefit is to use the Benefit Estimator on the MySamCERA website or app.

Disability retirements are calculated differently than regular service retirements. Please refer to the “Disability Retirement” guide for more information.
