How we calculate your pension

We calculate your pension based on your years of service and the average of your five highest years of salary.


We calculate your pension based on your years of service and the average of your five highest years of salary.

Your lifetime pension is calculated using:

  • The accrual rate (multiplier) for your member group
  • The average of your five highest years of salary (not necessarily the last five years)
  • Your years of pensionable service

Pension formulas for the plan’s different member groups may change over time, as determined by the Public Service Pension Board of Trustees.
