To be eligible for service retirement, employees must be at least age 50 and have five or more years of CalPERS-credited service.

There are some exceptions to the five-year requirement; so an employee age 50 or greater may want to contact a CalPERS Field Office to determine if one of these exceptions applies to their eligibility for retirement.

Note: Employees who are unable to work due to disability may qualify for disability retirement prior to age 50 if they meet the requirement of five or more years of CalPERS-credited service.
