What is DROP?
What do I do when I retire?
Drop is a DEFERRED RETIREMENT OPTION PROGRAM (DROP)
DROP provides you with an alternative method for payment of your retirement benefits for a specified and limited period if you are an eligible Florida Retirement System (FRS) Pension Plan member.
Under this program, you stop earning service credits toward a future benefit. Your retirement benefit is calculated at the time your DROP period begins and your monthly retirement benefits accumulate in the FRS Trust Fund - earning a monthly interest while you continue to work.
Upon leaving employment for retirement, your DROP account is paid to you as a lump sum payment, a roller or a combination of the two. Your monthly income benefits are then paid to you in the amount as calculated upon entry into DROP, plus cost-of-living adjustments for intervening years.
There are many rules to the DROP that you must make sure that you are aware of before electing to take your retirement money. This is a wonderful program but if you do not consult with an experienced advisor you may not realize the full potential of your hard earned money.
