Recognizing that some employees have already made decisions concerning a July 1, 2018 retirement effective date with KTRS, we would encourage you to initiate the KTRS retirement process no later than April 1st. The KTRS required application and supporting documentation must be turned in to KTRS by June 1, 2018. Below is a step by step guide for completing the KTRS retirement process:
Required documents: Copies of your Certified Birth Certificate, Marriage License, copy of retiree’s Social Security Card and Beneficiary Birth Certificate and address information.
Note: Those individuals age 65+ will need to contact the Social Security Administration to apply for Medicare Part A & B. The Medicare card is required for the retiree health insurance enrollment application.
Please feel free to contact Kari Aikins at ext. 5-5346 if you have any questions about the retirement process or wish to set up a consultation.
