At what age can you retire in Arizona?
How long do you have to work for the state of Arizona to get a pension?
Generally speaking, an employee must be hired to work a minimum of 20 hours per week, for a minimum of 20 weeks per fiscal year in order to qualify for membership.
Can you borrow from your Arizona state retirement?
State law prohibits borrowing from your ASRS pension account. The CARES Act, however, does provide for increased access to retirement plan loans and in-service withdrawals in response to participants' need for cash in this time of economic uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
