18. Do I actually have to work the last day of my employment before the effective date of retirement or can I use sick or vacation leave for the day?

Nothing in the retirement laws or regulations requires that you actually work the last working day before the effective date of your retirement. However, your municipality or employer may have different criteria with regard to your separation from service. We suggest you contact your Human Resource or Benefits office for more specific information.
