Glossaries of Benefit Terms
The District of Columbia Retirement Board (DCRB) has published glossaries of benefit terms applicable to members of its plans in the applicable Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs). Since there are two separate SPDs, one for the members of the D.C. Teachers' Retirement Plan and one for the D.C. Police Officers and Firefighters' Plan, we have separated the glossaries into two pages. You may view them below by clicking the links.
- Glossary of Benefit Terms for Teachers
- Glossary of Benefit Terms for Police Officers and Firefighters
These glossaries were last updated in July 2013, and the following terms have also been defined in the Summary Plan Descriptions dated from 2012. If you have further questions, please contact DCRB Member Services at the number below, or call the Member Services toll-free number at 1(866) 456-3272.
