APD Step-by-Step Guide for retiring as a sworn employee

  • Obtain a written pension estimate from the pension fund administrator.
    • They will need a copy of your most recent payroll receipt.
  • Pickup a pension packet from the pension fund administrator with all necessary forms.
    • You can call the pension fund administrator and they will mail a pension packet to you.
  • Complete the forms in the pension packet.
  • Go to the APD’s Personnel Services Unit with the completed pension forms.
  • Go back to the pension fund administrator with the completed pension forms signed by your Payroll Technician and the required documents (i.e. marriage certificate, birth certificates, Social Security cards, and driver’s licenses).
    • You need a copy of your spouse’s birth certificate, Social Security card, and driver’s license.
  • Ask to review your APD personnel files to insure accuracy prior to your last day of employment.
    • Personnel Services Unit file.
    • Unit personnel file (i.e. work site personnel file)
    • Training file
    • OPS file
    • Note: A Background/Recruitment file should also exist.
  • If you expect a payout for unused vacation hours, you should contact your 457 representative about a one time, lump sum contribution to your 457 plan.
    • The City’s Payroll & Pension Office at City Hall (first floor) must be notified, if you chose to do this on one pay check.
    • Do this step 30 – 60 days in advance of your last day of employment.
  • On your last day of employment, return to the APD’s Personnel Services Unit so your Payroll Technician can complete the form with your final numbers (i.e. hourly rate, total hours of unused vacation, total hours of unused sick leave, et cetera).
    • The completed form will be taken to the pension fund administrators so they can compute your actual monthly pension.
  • Remove all personal items from your APD work space.
  • On your last day, turn in all required APD items listed on the Equipment Return Form.
  • Approximately two weeks after your last day of employment, an employee from the City’s Payroll & Pension Office will call you and schedule an exit interview with you.
    • You will receive a City of Atlanta watch at the end of the interview.
  • Approximately one month after the last day of employment, a City employee will call you and schedule a meeting with you regarding your health/dental insurance benefits as a City/APD employee.
  • If you are a member, notify the Police Officer and Annuity Fund of Georgia after your last day of employment.
    • No additional monthly payments are due. The POABF of GA will note your status. You will have to wait until 55 years of age to apply for the monthly benefit.
