A valuable feature of your Plan benefits is the provision for "vesting".  This feature provides that, even if you separate from Department employment before you are eligible for a Formula Pension, you may leave your contributions and interest on deposit with the Plan and receive a Vested Right Retirement. 

A Vested Right Retirement is not a Formula Pension, and does not include COLA, health or dental insurance benefits, or an Eligible Spouse/Domestic Partner continuance. 
Since there is no Eligible Spouse/Domestic Partner continuance, only Options Full, A, B, and C are available to you.
