Applying for Benefits

Apply for Early  or Regular Retirement

Check to see if you are vested by logging in to Your Benefits Online. An eligible participant applying for an Early Retirement or a Regular Retirement benefit may submit an application 90 days before the month he or she first becomes eligible for benefits (for Early Retirement, the month after the participant turns age 55; and for Regular Retirement, the month after the participant turns age 62). You are encouraged to visit or contact the Pension Office at least one year before applying for a benefit to begin the process. Call 702-369-0000 to obtain more information.

When you are ready to retire, contact the Pension Office to schedule an appointment. A representative will assist you and determine the type of documents and information that you will need to bring to your appointment, which may include:

  1. Identification;
  2. Proof of age; and
  3. Proof of marital status.

You will be assigned a pension processor to support you throughout the application process. If you do not have the required documents the Pension Office will be happy to assist you in obtaining them.
