Thinking About Retirement?
Attend these WSSRA Pre-Retirement Webinars!
Fall 2022 Pre-Retirement Webinars
Tuesday, October 18, 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 March. 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, October 27, 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 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.
Registration for these events can be arranged through an email to Tara Teitzel (email@example.com) or by registering on the WSSRA website (www.wssra.org). Click on the Webinar tab and then on Pre-Retirement Zoom Webinars Oct 2022.
The following recorded webinar is still available for viewing at www.wssra.org:
WSSRA/DRS Plan 2 vs. Plan 3 Webinar from August 25, 2022. This 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.
