FAQ Type
Normal Retirement Age

To avoid an early retirement reduction, Regular members must meet a normal retirement age. IPERS often refers to normal retirement age as “rules.” Normal retirement age is one of the following, whichever comes first:

  • When your age plus years worked in IPERS-covered employment equals or exceeds 88 (Rule of 88)
  • Age 62 with 20 or more years of IPERS-covered employment (Rule of 62/20)
  • Age 65
