Retiree Supplemental Share Plans
The Supplemental Share plans are provided for Firefighters and Police Officers only.
Below are important notes about the management of your Supplemental Share account after retirement:
- Investment Accounts - Your investment funds must continue to be reviewed and managed just as they were before you retired.
- Begin Payments - If you have not started receiving scheduled payments yet, you may choose one of the available payment options voluntarily until you reach age 701/2, at which point mandatory payment must begin.
- Loans - No loans are allowed from you Supplemental Share account.
- Penalties - Early withdrawal of funds will incur a 10% penalty.
- Withholding Tax - The Federal Government mandates that a 20% withholding tax be held on payments when the amount will cause the payout not to last 10 years or more.
