Are You Getting Ready to Retire?

Jan 6, 2020, 09:06 AM by MOSERS

2020 Schedule Coming Soon!

Employees who are within five years of retirement eligibility will soon be able to register to attend a Ready to Retire (PreRetirement) Seminar or Webinar! The 2020 schedule for MSEP & MSEP 2000 seminars, as well as MSEP 2011 seminars and online webinars will be available on MOSERS’ website in mid-December.

MSEP & MSEP 2000 Ready to Retire (PreRetirement) Seminars will start again in February 2020.

MSEP 2011 Ready to Retire (PreRetirement) Webinars and Seminars will begin in March 2020.

Watch the mail in your office for our 2020 Ready to Retire Schedule poster. When you receive it, please hang it in a common area, such as a breakroom, so that your employees will be aware of upcoming seminars.

Members must be registered to attend. A spouse or guest is welcome to attend with a member, even if they are not a state employee, but they must be registered as well. If the guest is also a state employee within five years of retirement eligibility, they should register separately (as a member) in order to receive their own personalized benefit estimate. 

Similar to the past few years, 2019 Ready-to-Retire (PreRetirement) seminars filled early in the year and stayed full. MOSERS educators presented more than 90 seminars providing information to nearly 3,500 members through in-person sessions across the state, on university campuses, and via online webinars. Once registration opens, encourage employees who are planning to retire in 2020, or within the next five years, to log in through myMOSERS to view the seminar schedule and register for a session.

If the member (or member’s guest) is unable to attend after registering, they should contact MOSERS as soon as possible at (800) 827-1063, to cancel and/or reschedule. This will allow us to provide an accurate headcount to the caterer, venue, etc., and contact members who may be on a waiting list to attend.

Also, remember that all HR representatives are encouraged to attend a seminar at any stage in their career to familiarize themselves with MOSERS and the benefits we offer.
