LEOFF Benefit Enhancements

An error was made in DRS’s system that caused LEOFF 1 duty disability members and their survivors to have taxes withheld on lump-sum payments for any amount over $20,000. DRS is working to quickly resolve this issue and expect all accounts to be corrected and refunded no later than January 31. As of January 24 those withheld funds are beginning to show in direct deposit accounts.

New benefit enhancements will increase LEOFF Plans 1 and 2 retirement benefits. Receiving these benefit enhancements will not stop your lifetime monthly pension benefit.
