Comanche County Hospital Authority provides retirement benefits for you, at no cost to you. The retirement income that you will receive is just one of the fringe benefits gained by your years of service with the organization.

Your Retirement Benefit upon meeting vesting requirements (working 1,000 hours each year for 10 years) will be calculated as follows:
1. 0.60% of your Average Plan Compensation and then multiplying the sum by...
2. Your years of credited service.

Now let’s look ahead to the different situations in which you can expect to receive income from the Plan:

  • Rule of 90
    The Rule of 90 occurs when the employee’s age plus his or her years of service equals 90. If you choose to retire when you reach the Rule of 90 even if you are not yet age 65, your benefit will not be reduced for the longer payment period.
  • Normal Retirement
    Your normal retirement date is the 1st of the month following your 65th birthday. You may start receiving benefits on this date providing you have completed vesting requirements.
  • Early Retirement
    The Plan states that you are eligible for early retirement upon reaching age 55 and have completed vesting requirements. If you choose early payment, your benefit will be reduced because the payments are spread out over a longer period.
  • Late Retirement
    Employees who continue to work for the organization after attaining age 65 will continue to participate in the Plan and earn credited service until they actually retire. Your retirement benefit is calculated using the same formula as used for normal retirement or is based on your benefit as of normal retirement date (actuarially increased for delayed payment), if higher.
