To be eligible for monthly retirement benefits, you must have a minimum of twenty years of service at any age OR a minimum of 10 years service at age 55 or older.
Online Retirement Benefit Calculator
Members of the Newton Retirement System should use the online calculator for your own informal personal retirement planning. The State Retirement System has been kind enough to share the online
calculator with all public sector employees in Massachusetts. Under no circumstances should you contact the State Retirement System with questions regarding the online calculator. The Newton Retirement System is not bound by calculations performed on the online calculator.
If you are also eligible to collect Social Security benefits, you may want to bring your “Estimated Retirement Allowance Worksheet” to a Social Security representative to determine if the receipt of your retirement benefit will have any impact on your social security benefit.
