Plan Eligibility | Print |

When am I eligible to participate in the plan?

If your first day of employment with the County was on or after July 1, 1999, you are required to participate in the Plan as of your first day of employment. If your first day of employment or reemployment was before July 1, 1999, you can choose to elect to participate in this Plan or remain a Participant in the defined benefit pension plan. An election period is provided every year near the end of the first calendar quarter. Once you make this election, you cannot elect to go back into the defined benefit pension plan.
Elected officials and department heads may make an irrevocable election to not participate in the Plan by signing a waiver.
Eligible Employees enter the Plan on the later of:
• the first day of the first pay period after July 1, 1999;
• the first day of the first pay period on or after your date of hire; or
• the effective date of your transfer from the defined benefit pension plan to this Plan.


A Judge of the Fulton County Superior Court of the District Attorney of the Atlanta Judicial Circuit must file an election to participate in the Plan within six months after taking office. Otherwise, he or she will not be able to participate in this Plan.
