Building Your Future: Your Toolkit for Retirement

It is never too early to start planning for your retirement.
Not sure how to get started? SERS is here to help.

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.

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 can register as well, using Account Login.
