Initiating Retirement

(Questions about initiating retirement or retirement topics in general?

The Concordia Retirement Plan is a defined benefit plan, which pays a fixed monthly benefit based on salary and years of participation in the plan. A vested worker who terminates employment prior to age 55 will retain a vested benefit which is payable to the member after attainment of age 55 or to the spouse if the member is deceased.

Workers have the option of taking normal, early, or late retirement. To initiate retirement, model your upcoming retirement and more, go to Retirement Connection.
