Reading Your Statement

Möbius Benefit Administrators Inc. will mail your annual pension statement to your home address on file.  Below you will find an explanation of each section of the statement.

 

The top portion of your annual pension statement reflects the following personal information:

 

      - current address;

      - date of birth;

      - date of hire; and

      - date of Plan entry.

 

 

Section 1: Beneficiaries

This section of your annual pension statement reflects the beneficiary currently on file and the relationship of the beneficiary to you.

It is extremely important to keep your beneficiary information up to date.

 

Section 2: Employee Contributions

This section of your annual pension statement contains information on the contributions you have made to the Plan and the interest earned on those contributions.  In particular this section lists:

 

      - your contribution balance at the beginning of the statement period;

      - contributions made during the current statement period;

      - interest earned during the current period;

      - your contribution balance at the end of the statement period; and

      - the rate of interest that was applied to your contribution balance in the year

        of the statement.

 

This section will also reflect any voluntary contributions you have made to the Plan to reinstate prior service.

 

The total amount of contributions and interest reflected in this section is your contribution balance as of the statement date.  If you leave your employer for any reason other than retirement or death, and terminate your membership in the Plan, this is the minimum amount of benefits that must be paid from the Plan as of the statement date.

 

 

Section 3: Annual Pension Earned to Date

This section of your annual pension statement reflects the annual pension benefits you have accrued as of the statement date.  In particular this section lists:

 

      - the annual pension accrued at the beginning of the statement period;

      - the annual pension accrued during the current period;

      - the annual pension accrued at the end of the statement period;

      - the credited service received during the current period;

      - the total of all your years of pensionable service in the Plan;

      - the average of the Yeary Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YMPE) in your

        highest three consecutive years of pensionable earnings; and

      - the average of your highest three consecutive years of pensionable

        earnings.

 

 

Section 4: Projected Annual Pension

This section of your annual pension statement shows the projected pension you would receive at your normal retirement date (age 60 for Police members and age 65 for Civilian members) assuming no change to the average of your highest three consecutive years of pensionable earnings and your continued employment (with no breaks in service) until the date indicated.

Please note that all pension amount shown on your statement (Sections 3 & 4) are based on a single life pension with no guarantee period.  If you are married you must choose a joint and survivor pension that pays a spousal benefit of at least 60% in the event you pass away (unless your spouse signs a waiver).  If you are single you may choose a guarantee period of 5, 10, or 15 years.  In these cases the amount of pension you receive monthly will be reduced.

 

Below the projected annual pension calculation is some general information explaining the assumptions used to calculate your projected annual pension and describing the rules of the Plan with regards to early retirement eligibility.

 

The final sentence of this section includes a statement on the funded status of the Plan as of the last actuarial valuation.
