You can withdraw your benefit from the Plan, whether you are planning to stop working or not, if you are 55 or over. Be sure to ask the Plan administrator for the appropriate paperwork several months before you would like to receive your pension benefit. Feel free to call the administrator to discuss the process in advance.
Can I retire then work again and earn more pension?
Yes. Once you reach 55 you may withdraw your pension from the Plan. If you return to work, as long as you are under 72, and you work for an employer that contributes to this Plan, you will be treated as if you were a new Member of the Plan. Members may only “retire” from the Plan once a year.
