Benefit Estimates

You can run estimates inside your Member Self-Service account. Just log in and click on the Estimates tab.

Below you can find more information regarding running estimates.

Benefit estimates - general

Participants can run estimates of their future entitlement amounts inside their Member Self-Service (MSS) account.

  • Make sure that you understand your UNJSPF benefit options following separation from service. Consult the Benefit Options page on this website for detailed information about all UNJPSF benefits so you can make an informed benefit election that is the right choice for your case.
  • Estimates generated inside MSS will be based on the separation date you enter in the according field. The benefit options and amounts provided will be based on the data recorded for you in the Fund’s records. The estimate values provided will take into account the specifics of your case, e.g. for an Early Retirement benefit the value will already include the applicable reduction for early retirement.
  • When you run your estimate using the MSS Estimate tool, understand that the system is running various calculations in the background and that it can take several minutes to generate the estimate at the separation date you entered. Be patient.
  • Once the calculation is complete, the estimate document will be published under the MSS Documents tab as a PDF. To open the estimate, go to the Documents tab and click on the PDF document; you can also print the estimate.
  • You can run as many estimates as you need.
  • Keep in mind that estimates are just that and that the ones you generate inside MSS are neither audited nor signed. Should you require an estimate that carries a UNJPSF stamp and/or signature to be accepted for the intended purpose, please contact the Fund via the official contact channels provided under the Contact Us page.
  • Special note for Deferred Retirement benefit estimates: you can request a Deferred Retirement benefit (Art. 30) to start into payment any time between your Early Retirement Age (55 or 58) and your Normal Retirement Age (NRA) (60, 62 or 65). The Estimate Tool gives you the value of your Deferred Retirement benefit if it were to start into payment once you have reached your NRA. If you wish to know the value of the benefit if it were to start into payment at a date earlier than your NRA, i.e. a date between your Early Retirement Age and your NRA, please contact the Fund through the Contact Us page.
Two-track estimates

This feature is only available for retirees and beneficiaries who are already in payment.

The new estimate feature aims at providing you with a better understanding of whether it could be of interest to you to select this option. You would run the estimate providing your country of residence and the estimate would automatically contain the 36-month average exchange rate applicable to your pension case at your date of separation.

Obviously, this estimate will not prejudge on whether the benefits of selecting this option would remain the same in the long term. Inflation (and currencies) in given countries and the US can follow different paths while there are maximum and minimum levels of possible adjustments.

Who will be able to run Two-Track estimates in MSS?

The vast majority of retirees and beneficiaries with a separation date on or after 03 August 2015 will be able to run Two-Track estimates with the exception of a few special cases.

Who will NOT be able to run Two-Track estimates in MSS?

  • All retirees and beneficiaries with a separation date before 3 August 2015.
  • All retirees and beneficiaries who live in countries suspended from the two-track. Click here for a list of suspended countries.
  • Participants who have not yet separated (since we do not have the 36 months average exchange rate at their anticipated separation date)
  • Other special cases.
