Back By Popular Demand: When it Comes to Your LAGERS Benefit, You Can Take it With You

One of the greatest misconceptions when it comes to your LAGERS benefit is that in order to be eligible for a monthly benefit, you must stay with your employer until you retire.

My immediate thought was to respond with a solid "NO," but then I started thinking about situations which allow a member to receive their own contributions before reaching normal retirement age.
