Building Your Future: Your Toolkit for Retirement

This presentation is geared toward 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 presentation 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 sessions is limited, and advance registration is required. Once maximum capacity has been reached, that location will be closed to further registrations.

Dates and locations for this autumn’s presentation sessions will be posted soon.



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.


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.

If you are unable to attend an in-person conference, you can watch the conference presentation below or visit our YouTube channel.  You also have the option of participating in an online webinar; scroll to the top of this page for details.

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.
