The packet also contains a certification of complete severance and termination of employment, explains the WCTPT. Employees applying for retirement benefits before age 65 and their most recent employers covered under the plan are required to complete the certification. It takes about three months for the pension office to approve retirees' applications. Retirees receive retroactive benefits payments if the pension office approves their applications after their pension effective dates.
