School 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. If you have questions on seminar scheduling, contact NPERS Education Services department at NPERS.SEMINARS@NEBRASKA.GOV or call 402-471-9671.
Attending a (Free!) Webinar
The 1/2 day webinar is a slimmed down version of our all-day in-person events. These webinars are free to attend, and will provide you with in-depth information on your retirement plan, along with time to have your questions answered. The 1/2 day webinar in conjunction with our Social Security, Medicare, and Estate Planning videos, provides the same experience as our in-person, full-day seminars.
A PDF of the this year's binder of educational materials can be found HERE. These materials can be used to follow along with the webinar presentation, or simply as a guide for your own self-study of your retirement plan

Taking Leave with Pay to Attend an In-Person Seminar
Each eligible employee is entitled to receive leave with pay to attend up to two retirement planning programs. According to state law, "...leave with pay shall mean a day off paid by the employer and shall not mean vacation, sick, personal, or compensatory time." You may choose to attend a seminar more than twice, but such leave will be at your expense and at the discretion of the employer. Consult with your employer reqgarding leave granted prior to seminar attendance.
Cancellations of In-Person Seminars
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.
