2015 AB 397 and 2015 SB 329 increases the minimum retirement age for all employees by two years.
- General employees, teachers, elected officials and executive employees are currently eligible to retire at age 55. The bill would change that to age 57.
- Protective employees, such as police and firefighters, are currently eligible to retire at age 50. The bill would change that to age 52.
- This change would only apply to WRS participants who are under age 40 on the effective date of the bill.
Neither bill has been scheduled for a hearing.
