I am pleased to announce that Ron Gross, New York State Teachers' Retirement System Delegate, will be here to provide invaluable information regarding your retirement benefits. The workshop will take place in Salk's Little Theater at 4:00p.m. on January 25th.
I encourage all members who anticipate retiring within the next 5 years to attend.
This workshop will cover the structure of the defined pension benefit available to all members of the NYS Teachers' Retirement System.
It will include an overview of the NYSTRS pension benefit and the various tier structures.
The workshop will also address the following:
- Pertinent Legislation
- Prior Service Credit
- Steps to Take in Planning for your Retirement
- The Calculation of the Retirement Benefit
- Review of the Options & Reading your Annual Statement (you may wish to bring your annual statement that you received in November)
There will also be time set aside for questions and answers. I hope that many of you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!
