One unique aspect of the Blended Retirement System (BRS) is the ability to take a lump sum payment at retirement in exchange for a reduced monthly pension. Your options include:

  • No lump sum
  • 25% lump sum
  • 50% lump sum
Selecting a lump sum option will reduce your monthly retired pay until age 67, at which time your retired pay will be restored to the full amount. As a result, this calculator will compare the total amount of retired pay from the time you begin receiving it through age 67. This will allow you to compare the various options and help you make an informed decision for you and your family.

Please select the month and year of your birth and when you expect your retired pay to begin, then enter your estimated monthly retired pay:
