When am I “Vested?”

Vest-5

Your retirement account is vested when you have completed five (5) years of creditable Kentucky service. Vesting entitles you, as long as you do not receive a refund of your account, to future benefits even if you are not currently contributing to the system. If you discontinue employment in a TRS covered position and do not withdraw your account, you should contact TRS concerning your eligibility for future retirement benefits.
