    How does the NMERB Defined Benefit plan work?

    • NMERB administers a Defined Benefit (DB) qualified plan under IRS code section 401(a)
    • This is a LIFETIME benefit plan for you and a designated beneficiary (depending on your benefit option choice).
  • Retirement Eligibility

    When am I eligible to retire?

    Your hire date or plan entry date is what determines your retirement eligibility and how your pension benefit is calculated. NMERB has four tiers for retirement eligibility based on your hire date.

    The NMERB Defined Benefit Plan for Tiers 1, 2, and 3 consists of annual lifetime allowance equal to:

    Final Average Salary (FAS) (x) years (X) 2.35% (=) Annual benefit

    The NMERB Defined Benefit Plan for Tier 4 consists of annual lifetime allowance equal to:

    Final Average Salary (FAS) (x) graduated multiplier (=) Annual benefit

    A pension is calculated using a graduated multiplier. The pension factor changes every ten years up to year 30 and then remains at 2.4% thereafter.

    Four tiered multipliers – calculation is dependent on years of service.

    Years of Service multiplier table



    Tier 1 (hired prior to July 1, 2010)

    25 and out 25 years at any age - Earned + Allowed Service
