PREP Seminar: Traveling the Path to Retirement

SERS offers PREP seminars for members who are in the early to middle stage of their career.  Any member can attend; however, early planning for your future retirement will be most helpful.

The half-day seminar program covers important aspects of retirement planning: pension payment information, health care, Social Security, life transition issues, and financial planning (Ohio Deferred Compensation). There is no registration fee to attend. Space for these meetings is limited, and advance registration is required. Once maximum capacity has been reached, that location will be closed to further registrations.

Please be sure to register early to reserve your spot.

Retirement Conferences

In the spring and fall, SERS holds a series of Saturday meetings in various parts of the state for active and retiring members. Members have the opportunity to ask questions of staff members and learn the latest information on retirement issues.

Members within two years of retirement automatically receive notice by mail of the Retirement Conference in their area. All others interested in attending a conference will be able to register as well.

Special notices also will be posted on school bulletin boards.

Although there are question-and-answer opportunities, the conferences do not provide one-on-one counseling. If you wish to receive personal retirement counseling, please make an appointment to meet with one of SERS’ counselors in Columbus. To schedule an appointment, please call toll-free 800-878-5853.01

Unable to attend a Retirement Conference? The information shared at the Conferences is available on our YouTube channel. Click here to watch the entire series.
