PERS Retirement Seminar

PERS Retirement Seminar
October 2, 2023 - A free PERS/403(b) retirement planning seminar will take place at 6 p.m. On Tuesday, Oct. 3 at the District Office. The seminar will be presented by Skylar Koon with Cetera Investors, who has been conducting similar seminars for HSD employees for over a decade. 

The workshop is open to all employees and their partners, whether they are planning to retire in the near future or are simply looking to get some questions answered. Topics will include explaining the PERS system, its changes over time, and what they will mean to you. Different payout options will also be discussed to help you start thinking about what may be best for you and your family. Skylar will review the steps necessary to acquire an estimate for your retirement as well as the paperwork process for someone who decides to retire. Other topics will include taxes, health insurance, long-term care, and how PERS fits into other retirement tools to create a cohesive financial strategy for retirement, in addition to pitfalls to avoid when utilizing PERS in combination with other retirement accounts as well as Social Security.
