Benefits are paid on the last business day of each month. Learn more about the current schedule of payment dates here.


Benefits are paid at the end of the month (last business day) for the current month’s benefits.

First Benefit Payment

If you have recently retired, you will usually receive your first allowance payment by direct deposit at the end of the month following the month you retire (for example, if you retire any time in March, you will receive your first payment on the last business day in April). Also, due to processing time with your employer, it may be approximately 6-8 weeks before you receive your first retirement payment.
