Are you a LAGERS member nearing retirement? If so, you need to attend a LAGERS pre-retirement seminar at least once before you retire. Below are the top 5 reasons you should attend a seminar.
1. The information you will receive will be beneficial to your retirement planning.
LAGERS pre-retirement seminars are designed to give attendees a ‘crash course’ on everything they need to know regarding their LAGERS benefit. The sessions start with a high level discussion about the retirement plan and as the sessions progress, the topics become more detailed. When all is said and done, an attendee should have a more comfortable understanding of the decisions they will be making when completing the retirement process with the LAGERS system.
2. LAGERS Pre-Retirement Seminars are in your area!
You won’t have to travel far to attend a seminar because your LAGERS system hosts 20+ pre-retirement seminars across the State of Missouri. Some of the seminars are full day seminars and others are shortened evening or afternoon seminars.
3. Your spouse is welcome to attend with you.
The decisions you will be making may affect your spouse. So, your spouse is welcome to attend a seminar with you. That way, you both have an understanding of your benefits and you will have a second person with whom to discuss the information.
4. There will also be a Social Security presentation.
Many of our members are also eligible for Social Security benefits. So, at LAGERS full day pre-retirement seminars, the LAGERS system invites a representative from the Social Security Office to come and speak with you about your potential benefits. During this session, you will have the opportunity to learn about another source of retirement income.
5. LAGERS pre-retirement seminars are free.
Believe it or not, you are able to attend a very informative pre-retirement seminar with no cost to you! As part of LAGERS mission statement we are working to provide superior service and we hope to do so through our free seminars.
So, if you or some of your co-workers are nearing retirement and have some questions about your LAGERS retirement system, attend a LAGERS pre-retirement seminar in your area!
I hope to see you soon!
