Law enforcement annuity calculation


Q. If you have 14 years law enforcement (6c coverage) and switch to nonlaw enforcement and retire with 30 years at the minimum retirement age, would you calculate the rate at 1.7 percent x 14 years and 1 percent for the remaining 16 years, or do you lose all of the law enforcement benefits?

A. Your annuity would be calculated using the standard formula. No part of it would be computed using the enhanced formula.
