Pre-Retirement Seminars

Special Notice
May 12, 2020 – Due to the progression of COVID-19, all in-person seminars have been suspended through June 30, 2020. This affects the  Jefferson City, Lee’s Summit, Joplin, Springfield, and St. Louis locations. In lieu of in-person seminars, live webinars will be offered for these locations.  Registration links can be found in the corresponding location of the drop-down menu below.

This seminar is for members within five years of retirement eligibility. Representatives from MPERS, the MoDOT & Patrol Medical and Life Insurance Plan, and Deferred Compensation will be covering topics that include MPERS benefits, health care, deferred compensation plan, and more. There is no fee for this half-day seminar and spouses or non-member guests are also invited to attend with the member.

The MPERS portion of the workshop is conducted by an MPERS benefit specialist. Topics covered are the Closed Plan and Year 2000 Plan features, including the BackDROP option that allows you to take a lump sum distribution in addition to your defined monthly benefit over your life and the life of a loved one (if applicable). You will learn about the options offered by MPERS, how they affect your benefit, when you can make your retirement election, and what you need to consider before selecting an option. Other topics include service purchases, re-employment issues and updates on current legislative changes to MPERS benefits. Again, this workshop is for those within five years of retirement eligibility.

Each person in attendance will receive a Pre-Retirement Seminar Reference Guide.

Registration is available in myMPERS Secure Member Access.
