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 following the links below.

These glossaries were last updated and defined in the 2017 Summary Plan Descriptions. If you have further questions, please contact DCRB Member Services at the number below, or call toll-free at 1(866) 456-3272.
