Calculating your benefit
In addition to reviewing your retirement eligibility, you can use the Pension Projection Tool on the ERSRI Member Portal to estimate your benefit amount. The Pension Projection Tool uses the information in your account, which has been submitted to ERSRI by your employer throughout your career. An ERSRI Retirement Counselor will also provide you with an estimate and discuss the calculation of your benefit and the payment options available to you at your counseling appointment.
