Member Self Service Features
With a few easy steps, members can let us know they are ready to retire using their Member Self Service account. Applying online simplifies what can often feel like an overwhelming process. After completing the Self Service retirement application, additional paperwork will be provided and must be completed and returned to KPPA by the specified deadline.
Members will need their KPPA-issued Personal Identification Number (PIN) to submit their retirement application through Self Service. The Upload Document button on each step of the retirement application allows you to upload required documents.
Once you have completed the online application, your employer will be notified to complete Section H (Employer Certification of Leave Balances and Final Salary) of the application in Employer Self Service. Section H requests that your employer verify wages, sick leave balances, and/or your accumulated compensatory time. Note: Section H is not required for members who have been not been employed for least three months.
Birth certificates, driver’s licenses, marriage certificates, and other retirement documents may be submitted to KPPA from your mobile device, tablet, or personal computer. To upload documents, click Documents on the home page after you log in.
