When am I eligible to retire?

If you were a member of the BCRS prior to April 2, 2012, you are eligible to retire at age 55 or older if you have at least ten years of creditable service. If you have 20 years of service, you can retire at any age. If you became a member of the BCRS on or after April 2, 2012, please see “Massachusetts Public Employee Retirement Guide for Public Employees Who Became Members On or After April 2, 2012” (link available under under Retirement Guides).
