Retirement Planning Webinars

The Retirement Systems is continuing to offer Retirement Planning Webinars.
The webinars offer TSERS and LGERS members nearing retirement an additional resource for retirement planning information.

The interactive, online conferences will provide an orientation for new members, pre-retirement planning information for members closer to retirement, and educational information for personnel officers and others who handle retirement matters. Space is limited to the first 100 registrants. So, if members plan to attend, they must register.

An email confirmation will provide a link to the webinar. Attendees will also receive a reminder email the day of the event that includes a link to the webinar. A phone number and teleconference password will be provided for those who would like to participate with audio only.
