Retirement Online is the easiest and most efficient way to apply for retirement. Members of the Teachers ' and State Employees' Retirement System (TSERS) and Local Governmental Employees' Retirement System (LGERS) have access to the application 120 days from their effective retirement date.

The Retirement Online application guides you through the process with integrated videos, on-screen examples and links to important information at critical decision-making points. You will also receive timely notifications and status updates.

If you are thinking about retirement, start preparing now and make sure that you:

  • have access your ORBIT account,
  • use your personal email address as your primary email address in ORBIT,
  • review the Retirement Online process map,
  • talk to HR staff and let them know your intentions and follow any internal process your employer has in place,
  • attend a Retirement Planning Conference or schedule a one-on-one virtual appointment;
  • take time to create a Custom Benefit Estimate (in your ORBIT account), and
  • click Apply for Retirement Online in the left menu bar to start your application (120 days from your retirement date).
