Thinking About Retirement?
Attend these WSSRA Pre-Retirement Webinars!
Fall 2021 Pre-Retirement Webinars
Thursday, October 28, 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 April. Active employees within five years of retirement particularly will benefit from the information provided. Following the presentation, a Q & A opportunity will be provided.
Thursday, November 4, 4:30 to 6:15 p.m. The second part of the basic review of retirement planning will focus on Social Security/Medicare and VEBA. This also will follow the format of last spring’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.
Do you know a new school hire?
The following webinar is exclusively for newbies!
Tuesday, November 9, 4:30 to 5:45 p.m., WSSRA/DRS New School Employee Retirement Planning Webinar. This brand-new event is designed for newly-hired school employees. By early November this group will be approaching 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. Following the presentation, a Q & A opportunity will be provided.
