Washington state's Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters State Retirement Plan II (LEOFF II) is the current retirement system.

Employees are eligible for vested retirement after five years of service and attainment of age 53, the amount equaling 2 percent of the final average salary for each year of service.

Monthly Benefit
The formula used to calculate your monthly benefit is:
  • service credit months / 12 x 2% x final average salary= monthly benefit
  • 300 months of service / 12 = 25 years x 2% = .05 x $95,000 = $4,750 per month 

*Average your monthly salary from the highest-paid 60 consecutive months in which you earned service credit. Usually, this is your last 60 months of service.

The City of Issaquah provides life insurance for the officer.
