No matter how far along you are in your career, careful financial and retirement planning are critical. NYSTRS’ Pension & Retirement Education Program (PREP) is designed to help members of all ages accomplish that. Members can tailor PREP to fit their needs by staying for the entire seminar (8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) or just those modules that help them the most: NYSTRS benefits; financial planning; Social Security; estate planning; retirement—a new beginning; and, the retirement process.
PREP seminars are free, and sessions are held throughout the year across the state. Our winter-spring 2018 PREP schedule is now available on the Retirement Planning > Pension & Retirement Education Program page of our website at NYSTRS.org. Please forward this information to your staff as soon as possible so those wishing to attend can register before slots are filled. Instructions for making reservations, which will be accepted in the order they are received, are included on the schedule.
Please copy the schedule and post it in locations frequented by your staff. An electronic
version of this Administrative Bulletin, complete with schedule, is also available on the Employers > Administrative Bulletins page of our website.
Members may also be interested in attending a NYSTRS benefits consultation, available year-round. At these one-on-one meetings, staff review the retirement process, explain payment options and provide members with benefit estimates for their target retirement dates. Our 2017-2018 consultation schedule is now available on the Retirement Planning > Benefits Consultations page of our website.
Thank you for your assistance in spreading the word about these important member programs.
