Replacement Ratio

A calculation of the degree to which retirement income supplants a pre-retirement member’s “take home” pay, less working expenses. To determine this ratio, several factors must be taken into account: a retiree’s pre-retirement earnings; changes in tax liabilities after retirement; changes in Social Security tax liability; the elimination of work-related expenses – including contributions to the retirement system; and savings.
