The J. Paul Getty Trust Retirement Plan provides you with a fixed monthly income upon retirement. The plan was frozen as of December 31, 2016, which means that no earnings after that date will be included in your benefit calculations and service will only be included for vesting purposes.

Eligibility and vesting

You are a participant in the Retirement Plan if you were hired before January 1, 2009.

The normal retirement age is 65. You may take early retirement between ages 55 ‒ 64 if you have completed 10 years of service. However, if you retire before age 62, your monthly benefit amount will be reduced.

How your benefit is determined

The Getty sets aside funds to provide a benefit that is based upon your eligible pay, age and years of service.
