Ready for Retirement:  For members retiring in 2017

The MTRS staff will be presenting our popular seminar, “Ready for Retirement,” across the Commonwealth in November and December. “Ready for Retirement” is a free, optional, two-hour program (4-6 p.m.) designed for members retiring in 2017. We’re reaching out to soon-to-be retirees before the retirement season starts so that when you begin the application process, you will know just what you need to do and when.

Topics include:

  • the retirement application process and the benefit calculation formula,
  • timelines and service expectations,
  • first payment information,
  • health insurance, tax and working after retirement issues, and
  • cost-of-living adjustments after you retire.

Please note: Personalized account information and pension estimates are not offered during these sessions.

To attend, simply choose the date and location that is best for you, and then register online. We hope to see you soon!
