Thinking About Retirement?
Attend these WSSRA Pre-Retirement Webinars!
Spring 2022 Pre-Retirement Webinars
Tuesday, March 15, 2022, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) and the Health Care Authority (PEBB) will present the first part of a 101-level review of basic retirement planning. This will be similar to the WSSRA-sponsored webinar that took place last October. Active employees within five years of retirement particularly will benefit from the information provided. Following the presentation, a Q & A opportunity will be provided.
Tuesday, March 22, 2022, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The second part of the basic review of retirement planning will focus on Social Security/Medicare and VEBA, your sick leave buyout options. This also will follow the format of last fall’s presentation. We found that dividing the presentations into two separate sessions avoided the rush and “too-much-information-at-once” challenges that came with one lengthy presentation. Following the presentation, a Q & A opportunity will be provided.
The following recorded webinars are still available for viewing at www.wssra.org:
DRS & HCA/PEBB WEBINAR from October 28, 2021.
SOCIAL SECURITY/MEDICARE & VEBA from November 4, 2021.
NEW SCHOOL EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT PLANNING from November 9, 2021. This brand-new event was designed for newly-hired school employees. By early November this group approaches their non-revocable 90-day deadline to choose between Plan 2 or Plan 3. DRS will be on hand to explain the differences between both plans and will provide information on state-sponsored deferred compensation. In addition, a financial planner will discuss the advantages of establishing a long-term savings plan and thinking about retirement security at the beginning of a K-12 career.
