Employment Changes

Changed agencies since joining POAB Fund? No longer in law enforcement?

If so, you will need our Certification by Employing Agency form. If you left one agency and began employment with another, our office requires two forms (one from each agency). Please have them separately completed by your previous and current agency.

Forms must be signed by a person with personnel record access and notarized by a different individual. 

You may submit these forms by using the following methods:

  • Email: [email protected]
  • Fax: 770-412-1236
  • Mail: POAB Fund, 1208 Greenbelt Drive, Griffin, GA 30224

The POAB Fund issues retirement benefits based on the years and months of creditable service. The Fund determines creditable service by the information provided on these Certification Forms. We must have one completed every time you begin and leave an eligible position. We always suggest obtaining these forms sooner rather than later.

Members removed from active status who fail to inform the Fund of employment changes within eight months may reinstate. Learn more on our Reinstatement page.

Leave of Absence

A provision for Leave of Absence is made for members who are not yet vested with the minimum 10 years (joined before June 30, 2010) or 15 years (joined after July 1, 2010) of Fund participation required to draw the Pension. The fund must be notified within 90 days of leaving Law Enforcement and again within 30 days of returning to Law Enforcement. Learn more on the Leave of Absence Page.
