Retirement Overview

Foundations For Your Future


 
The PSERS Foundations For Your Future (FFYF) seminars are designed to give public school employees an overview of their retirement benefits. These seminars provide all active members with general information about PSERS' benefits and services. Attendance at a FFYF seminar will help you begin to plan for your retirement early in your career. Each seminar lasts approximately 90 minutes. These seminars are provided solely for the education of members of PSERS. Financial planners will not be permitted to solicit business at these seminars.

 

Registration Not Required

Please note - advance registration is not required to attend any of these seminars. You may attend any seminar at any location that you wish.
