The Pension Adjustment (PA) Calculator should be used when a teacher:

  • purchases current year service and TRAF sends you purchased earnings and service information to add to the actual earnings and service,
  • only received earnings (ie. retro pay) but had no service in the year. Recalculate the PA for the last year the teacher had service with the retro earnings included.

The TRAF Calculator should be used whenever a teacher:

  • works part of a year,
  • changes percent of service mid-year, or
  • has a large change in salary mid-year.

Your payroll system does not calculate the TRAF contributions on the summer salary adjustment correctly when these changes occur. This will cause a variance which you will have to collect or refund later.

The Additional Voluntary Contribution Calculator should be used as a resource when a member wishes to make voluntary contributions.
