It has been brought to the attention of the Pension Policy Committee that many members are not aware of the need to transfer their pension account when they change districts or job types.
Members who fail to make a necessary transfer within the statutorily allotted timeframe may be adversely impacted with regards to pension credit and tier.
This flyer outlines what members need to be aware of to maintain active status of their pension accounts.
Additionally, NJEA will be hosting another Online Pension Webinaron May 12 from 3:30-5:00.
