Payment of Your Benefit

Because PEERS is a defined benefit (DB) plan, your retirement benefits are paid to you for life, no matter which benefit plan you choose. Your benefits are eligible for cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) and are subject to both federal and state income taxes.

Your monthly benefit payments are made by direct deposit on the last working day of each month starting in the month your retirement becomes effective, and should be available for use as follows:
