BENEFIT ESTIMATE DISCLAIMER-MERS PART B

Only use this estimator if your position is covered by social security.

This is a benefit estimator only. It will estimate your pension based strictly on the information you provide.

The estimator is not connected to your earnings record, payroll, or your employer's information file. The accuracy of your estimate will depend on how closely  the
information you provide matches the information used to calculate your benefit at the
time you retire. Factors that may affect the accuracy of the estimate include changes to
contributions, earnings, retirement credit, final average salary, calculation factors,
legislative changes or any other relevant information

The estimator will not calculate:              
  • Costs and impacts associated with optional purchases.
  • Estimates if a benefit will be adjusted as a result of a divorce decree.
  • Disability retirement benefits.
  • Retirement benefits based upon part-time service.

The information you provide and the estimates that are created are not reviewed, audited or verified by the MERS unit of the State of CT Retirement Services Division (RSD). As a result, the benefit estimate produced by this estimator is not binding on the MERS unit, the State of CT or RSD. This estimate does not entitle you to any benefits. The actual benefit you may be entitled to receive can only be known and officially calculated when you retire or terminate your employment.

You should not rely on the benefit estimate in making any retirement based decisions or taking any action with respect to your MERS benefits.
