The calculator on this page may be used to estimate your potential service retirement benefits.  This calculator allows you to enter information to obtain an unofficial estimate of your GERS benefit.  This is not an official GERS estimate, and it does not include all retirement options available to GERS members.  The GERS benefits calculator is a tool designed to allow you to estimate your own retirement benefit when planning for your retirement.
