There are four pages in the retirement application, they are: (1) Retirement Application Instructions, (2) Application for Retirement Checklist, (3) Member Information, and (4) the Employer Certification. Complete the Member Information Form and return it to your personnel or business office where the Employer Certification will be completed.
