If you are a member of the ASA Only plan, use these guidelines to estimate your benefit:
Vested status in the plan is based on full years of participation. You are always 100 percent vested in the fixed 3 percent and any rollover contributions you make. However, vesting in the value of variable rate contributions (employer share) varies by length of participation. Only full years of participation count toward vesting in the variable rate (employer share) portion.
One year = 20 percent
Two years = 40 percent
Three years = 60 percent
Four years = 80 percent
Five years = 100 percent
Full vesting of 100 percent occurs at termination for normal retirement age (age 62 + five years of participation) and death of a member in the line of duty.
All credit for years of participation is subject to final certification at retirement.
