Ready to Retire

MOSERS has been delivering Ready to Retire Sessions (formerly known as Preretirement Seminars) across the state since 1984. These sessions help general state employees understand the decisions they will need to make and to prepare for the retirement process.


If you are a Statewide Elected Official, Legislator, Judge, Administrative Law Judge or vested former state employee, contact MOSERS for specifics regarding your retirement options.


Session Tips & Reminders

Retirement Income Estimates

In addition to receiving your MOSERS defined benefit pension, other factors may affect how much money you will have in retirement. MOSERS strongly encourages you to consult with your health insurance provider for premium costs (as a retiree) and to check with MO Deferred Comp and the Social Security Administration to generate estimates of your other potential sources of retirement income. To get an overall look at your retirement budget, it is a great idea to bring those estimates with you on the day of the seminar.
