Pension Payments

Timing of Monthly Benefit Payments

Pension payments are mailed on the second-to-last business day of each month and are payable on the last business day of the month.  These payments cover the benefits earned for the month that is ending.


Check or direct deposit remittances are for a full month of benefits.


Your first pension payment will be sent at the end of the month that follows your retirement date.  For example, if your retirement date is May 15, your first pension payment would be sent at the end of June.
