Application for Retirement--Additional Form Required


Federal (8 U.S.C. � 1621) and State (O.C.G.A. � 50-36-1) statutes require verification of lawful presence in the United States when applying for public retirement benefits. Therefore, TRS is requiring that every member applying for either service or disability retirement complete an Affidavit of Residency form. The form is located in the Forms dropdown menu and has been added to the Service and Disability Retirement Packages. The Affidavit of Residency is not included in the Retirement Handbook. In the meantime, if you have a Retirement Handbook, we ask that you download a copy of the Affidavit of Residency and include it with your application.
