To figure out what you will get multiply

1.666% x your final average salary which means your highest 3 consecutive

Earnings years multiplied by years of service for example

 

Lets say your final average salary is

70000 x 1.666% = 1166 x 15 years of service = 17490 annual pension

 

If you have between 20-30 years of service

The calculation is

 

Final average salary x 2% x years of service

 

70000 x 2% = 1400 x 20 years of service = 28000 a year

Who really knows if some of us are going to get our full social security

benefit in the future. Who knows you might want and be able to work

past 65, work as long as you can that way you won't have to worry about

outliving your money.

 

Don't forget your Roth IRA in addition to your 457/401 k plans.

Age is just a number Seal, there are many people out there working into their

70's and older.

Every tier is calculated the same exact way

the calculation is always the same .

thank you.i found out the difference on tier 4 and 5 tier 4 i only have to contribute 3% for 9 yrs 4 months because i will buy back my 8 months.tier 4 you pay 3% for 10 yrs to nycers fully vested in 5 yrs as for tier 5 you have to pay damm i forgot like 8%i think correct me till you retire and fully vested after 10 years.im glad i never took my money out of nycers and will be hired back with tier 4 retirement :tup:

Thanks for starting this very important thread Seal, a lot of the younger

people might not be interested in this but there are a lot of people on

lists who are over 35 and the older you are the more you worry/plan for

your retirement.

 

So you would manage your pension account through the NYCERS website

right? Thanks primo for the pension example.

yes loco they send you a booklet each year with how much you got in,dates,etc. also can view it online you have to set up an account and password.
loco the statement from nycers is just your contribution to the nycers pension system.what primor said is correct they look at your last 5 years get your best 3 years from that then then get your average.your contributions are not going to be the same as your pension its just money you contribute to nycers to have a pension.but after your fully vested you can take out a loan on nycers.but i would not even touch it no way.

If you are earning 80k a year you can easily save 25k per year and invest it and earn

10% a year you would be sitting pretty with around 875k in cash . Withdraw a meager

5% and you have around 44k a year in extra income . You don't even need a pension

You can make your own
