The Division of Pensions and Benefits has scheduled upcoming Retirement Seminar dates for members of the Public Employee's Retirement System (PERS), Teacher's Pension and Annuity Fund (TPAF), or Police and Firemen's Retirement System (PFRS). Both in-person Seminars and live online webinars are available.
Designed for employees who are planning for retirement, retirement seminars and webinars provide a step-by-step look at the retirement process. We explain retirement benefits, beneficiary options, group life insurance, and how to submit the retirement application online using MBOS. Retirement eligibility, purchase, loan repayment provisions and the taxability of pension are explained along with a brief discussion of State Health Benefits Program and School Employee's Health Benefits Program coverage in retirement. Seminars conclude with a question and answer period; Webinar attendees are able to submit questions for individualized answers.
