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 benefit estimates.

Read carefully the choices that you have when you are making an estimate. Understand that the system is making a lot of calculations and it will take a few minutes to generate the estimate that you requested. Once the calculation is complete the estimate will appear in the Documents tab as a PDF and you can go and open it there. Estimates are just that and the ones calculated through Member Self-Service will not be signed or validated by the Fund. Should you require an estimate that carries a UNJSPF stamp or signature to be accepted for the intended purpose, please contact the Fund via the official contact details provided under the Contact Us page.

For more detailed information about using the “Estimate” tool watch the video under the Resources section (right column).

Please note that the Estimate Tool gives you your Deferred Retirement Benefits values at your Normal Retirement Age (60, 62, 65). If you wish to know the value of your Deferred Retirement Benefits at age 55 or 58 please contact the Fund (through the Contact Us form on the website).

Please note, the term “Normal Retirement Age (NRA)” refers to the NRA for Pension purposes, which is determined by the date at which you qualified for UNJSPF participation and might differ from your Mandatory Age of Separation (which is determined by the Staff Regulations of your employing organization). Detailed explanations in this regard are available here.

The PR rates in the Estimate Tool are updated annually, at the same time that Participants Pension Statements are released. If you wish to do an estimate using your current PR rate which changed since your last Pension Statement was released, please contact the Fund.

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.

What if I cannot run Two-Track estimates in MSS?

No problem, we can run a Two-Track estimate for you, please submit your request together with the information of the country of residence for which you would like to obtain an estimation through our online contact form.
