Considering Retirement?

If you plan to retire at the end of this school year, please contact Cindy Hardy (Brister) at 228-938-6515.  We need to set an appointment date to complete the Pre-Application for Retirement.  At this appointment, you will need the following documents:  social security card, valid driver's license or birth certificate and the social security number and date of birth of at least two individuals you may list as a beneficiary.  PERS does ask for the Pre-Application for Retirement to be submitted at least 90 days before your retirement date.  

See the PERS website Public Employees Retirement System of Mississippi for seminar dates and registration information.  We strongly encourage employees to attend a meeting with PERS once becoming eligible to retire.
