Whether you need a benefit estimate, an appointment with a retirement specialist, or just have a question, we are here to help.

Due to COVID-19, staff will be working remotely.  Offices are closed to visitors.  The best way to reach us is by emailing us at retirecity@seattle.gov.  You can also call us at  (206) 386-1293.

If you have paperwork that you would like to drop off in person rather than mailing you may place it in the Treasury drop box located on the 4th floor of the Seattle Municipal Tower.  The drop box is located by the cashiers windows.  Please place your document(s) in a sealed envelope with "Attention Retirement" written on it.  Staff will pick up mail on Wednesdays.  You can also fax documents to 206-386-1506.
