Retirement Benefits

The Town of Palm Beach offers a variety of retirement plans designed to complement the overall benefit package provided to town employees. These programs include a town-sponsored defined benefit pension plan for Police Officers and non-union Firefighters, and a defined benefit pension plan offered in conjunction with a 401(a) defined contribution plan that includes matching contributions from the town for all other employees. Additional benefits include a retirement health savings program, optional Roth IRA, and an optional 457 deferred contribution plan. Refer to the Employee Retirement Program Guide.

Retirement Board

The Retirement Board of Trustees consists of nine members that includes one employee from each of the benefit group:

  • General/Lifeguard
  • Firefighter
  • Police Officer

The employee is elected by members of the respective benefit group. Along with the employee members, five residents who are not officers or employees of the town, retirees, or beneficiaries of the retirement system hold a seat on the board. The Finance Director also holds an ex-officio seat.
