Social Security and Pension Off-Set
Many retirees and members have questions about whether their Social Security benefits will be affected by their public pension.  This page contains links to information that  may help you understand how your public pension may affect your Social Security benefit.  Benefits received from Social Security may be offset by the pension you receive from the Essex Regional Retirement System (ERRS).  The amount that may be "offset" is determined by Social Security.  If you have any questions regarding your Social Security benefit, please contact your nearest Social Security office.  If you have any questions regarding your benefit from ERRS, please contact our retirement staff at (978) 739-9151.

Thank you.
