MOSERS Pension and Social Security

Posted on
Is it true that a retired state worker's pension is reduced by the amount of social security that the person would receive when they reach their retirement age for social security?
No, that is not correct. Under the MSEP 2000 provisions, members who retire under Rule of 80 receive a benefit for life plus a temporary benefit payable to age 62 – that temporary benefit is intended to provide a financial bridge from the time the member retires until reaching eligibility for social security retirement benefits.
