Retirement Planning Seminars

  The NPERS retirement seminars are an excellent way to begin planning for an important time in your life. Seminars include information regarding your pension plan, financial planning, social security benefits, adjusting to retirement, and estate planning. Enrollment brochures are mailed to all eligible members approximately four weeks prior to the seminar. If you have questions on seminar scheduling, contact NPERS Education Services department.

We have new seminar options now available to our members, as on-site seminars may be limited by location and number of people who can attend. In an effort to provide alternatives that fit everyone's lifestyle, NPERS now offers ½ day webinars and evening webinars. These options, unlike the on-site seminars, are FREE to attend, all you need to do is sign up! Attending a ½ Day Webinar, in conjunction with our Social Security, Medicare, and Estate Planning videos, provides a full-day seminar experience.

We encourage our members to take advantage of the new seminar options! On-site seminars may be subject to cancellation or a reduction in the number of participants, as an alternative consider attending a webinar for a more secure scheduling option.

Cancellations (On-Site Seminars Only)
In the event a session is cancelled, NPERS will attempt to contact participants. Limited time frames associated with weather cancellations may make it difficult to contact every participant in advance. In the event of a weather cancellation, NPERS will place a notice on the home page of the NPERS website as soon as possible and members may contact our office to confirm seminar status. Cancellation of a seminar does require the employee to report to their workstation or make other arrangements with their employer (use vacation time) concerning their absence. If NPERS reschedules a cancelled seminar, each registrant will be contacted concerning the new date and given the option of attending or receiving a refund. If a seminar is cancelled and not rescheduled, you will receive a refund of your registration fee.

Preretirement Program

This last spring we offered three options for attending a seminar. One of our newest options was the ½ day webinar. The ½ day webinar in conjunction with our Social Security, Medicare, and estate planning videos, provides a full-day seminar experience. If you were unable to attend a seminar program -we've got you covered! We recorded our June 16th, 2021 webinar session, hosted via Webex, and you can watch it anytime for that seminar-at-home experience. We have also provided a link to the webinar binder materials that we used this year so you can follow along with the presentation or if you would simply like those materials for your own self-study of your retirement plan.
