As an actively employed member, do I have access to the funds in my annuity savings account?

No! Your annuity savings account is not an individual retirement account. Remember that you contribute to HCRRS instead of Social Security, not in addition to Social Security.

By law, you are not eligible to withdraw your annuity savings account balance as long as you are 1) actively employed, 2) receiving workers compensation, or 3) on authorized leave of absence by or from any Massachusetts public employer.
