Give your retirement an annual checkup

January 29, 2020

The start of the new year is a great time to check up on the retirement information in your DRS online account, starting with your contribution and service total.

Simply log in and select “Plan Summary” to view your contributions, and “Service Credit Detail” to check your service totals. We recommend you review your totals at least once a year, but you can review this information as often as you’d like.

And while you are logged in, did you know you can use the Benefit Estimator to generate projections on how much you’ll be paid in retirement? It’s a convenient way to evaluate whether you’re on track to meet your retirement goals.

You can also use your online account to update beneficiaries and, when you’re ready, apply for retirement. Find out more.

Accessing your online account is easy, even if you need to sign up or reset your password. You can do it all from the login page. Also, if it’s been awhile since you last logged in, you’ll see we’re adopting additional security measures to safeguard your information.

For questions about your account, you can securely message us through the “Contact Us” link in your online account or by using the secure email contact form.
