Why does it matter if I became a member of the retirement system after April 2, 2012?

The Pension Reform Act of 2011 created new requirements for employees who became members after April 2, 2012. These new requirements affect the time at which you can retire as well as the calculation used to determine your pension, among other significant changes. The Retirement Guides tab of this website includes a retirement guide for members after April 2, 2012.
