Thinking about retiring online? Now it’s even easier to do both steps of the two-step process online! For most general state employees*, the Retirement Election forms (Step 2) can now be completed online, right after the Retirement Application forms (Step 1) with no waiting. You are not required to complete both steps all at once; you can return when you are ready and easily see what forms are left to complete the process.
Track Your Progress
After logging in to your Member Homepage and selecting Retire Online from the menu, you’ll see a Retirement Progress bar on the left side of the screen showing how close you are to completing the process. You’ll also see a list of Step 1 Forms and Step 2 Forms, with a green checkmark by the forms already completed. Instructions for each form will guide you through what you need to do. There’s no waiting for MOSERS to process your retirement paperwork and then mail the forms to you.
If you decide to leave and come back later, make sure you submit the form you are currently working on before exiting so it will be saved.
If you still need to submit any required proof documents, a notice will also be displayed on the left side of your screen. While you are online, remember that you can upload your scanned documents to MOSERS. A link to the Document Upload is under the list of proof documents. Instructions and helpful tips will guide you through the upload process. This is also safer and faster than having to wait for the mail or wondering if a fax document went through.
Call us at (800) 827-1063 if you need help or to make an appointment to speak with a benefit counselor. If you need to make changes after you’ve submitted a form, please call MOSERS.
We know your time is valuable. Log in to our website 24/7 and retire online, at your convenience.
- If you are married and elect a benefit payment option other than a joint and survivor option, your spouse must consent to your election by signing a form MOSERS will send to you.
- If you elect BackDROP, with a rollover distribution to a qualified retirement account other than with the MO Deferred Comp plan, MOSERS will provide you with a form and you must have an authorized official from your financial institution or retirement plan sign the form agreeing to accept the rollover. Once signed, the form must be returned to MOSERS.
Have You Created an Online ID Yet?
As of September 3, 2016, all MOSERS members wishing to log in to their MOSERS Member Homepage must create an Online ID. Your Online ID will replace the use of your social security number/Member ID for logging in and is a more secure practice. Click on the blue Member Login button at the top of our website main page and we will guide you through the process. You will only need to create an Online ID once, then, any time you log in again, you will simply use your Online ID and MOSERS password. This is a unique ID you will create especially for your MOSERS login, so if you have created one for MCHCP or MO Deferred Comp, you will still need to set one up for the MOSERS website.
To log in: Online ID + Password
To create your Online ID, you must have a valid email address on file with MOSERS. If you don’t have one or need to change it, please call MOSERS first. If you already have a password that meets the minimum requirements, you may continue to use it with your new Online ID.
We are constantly striving to improve the security and functionality of our website. To get a head start, watch our new Member Login video and please see our Site Help Desk, if you have any questions.
Guidelines for creating an Online ID:
- Must be between 5-50 characters
- Must have at least 1 alpha character
- Must NOT be the same as an existing Online ID, contain a space, be a social security number, Member ID, or MOSERS password.
