Retirement Classes


CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Planning for Retirement:

Planning for Retirement (PfR), provides information to help you understand how your County pension is calculated and how decisions you make with regards to years of service can affect your annual pension income. Once you understand how your retirement benefit is calculated, you will be able to calculate your own estimated benefit amount, using variable salary information and years of service and make adjustments with regards to current or projected accumulated sick leave balances. Information will be provided to help employees understand the differences between Normal Retirement and DROP participation and things to consider when making your decision.

These sessions also provide information about the County benefits you may be able to keep when entering retirement (i.e. health, dental and life insurance) and how length of service can increase your health benefit subsidy. This presentation is recommended for all vested general County employees. These information sessions are not open to employees who are currently participating in the DROP.

  • Classes noted with 20 space limits are only open to general county employees who plan to retire or enter DROP within the next two years. If you would like to have a spouse attend the class with you, please make a note of that on your initial application so space will be saved.

Please submit a completed Training Application by fax, mail or e-mail if you would like to attend "Planning for Retirement".
These classes are NOT available for registration within EmployeeU.
Confirmations are done by e-mail to employee and/or Training Coordinator or Supervisor every two to three weeks.

Please Note:   Enrollment closes when class is full or one week prior to class date.

Retiring with Security:

Strengthen Your Financial Health and Well-Being

Attend "Retiring with Security" a program to help you learn more about the Deferred Compensation Plan and your County Defined Benefit Plan. Find out if you are saving enough for retirement and hear a review of the Defined Benefit Plan, including retirement eligibility & benefits, and learn how to navigate the Retirement Systems website.

This class is not intended for employees who are already participating in the DROP (Deferred Retirement Option Program).
