Retirement Seminar 2016

No matter where you are in your career, it is never too early to plan for retirement. Our WEA-Retired group hosts a pre-retirement seminar that you can’t afford to miss if you are starting to plan for retirement.

At our pre-retirement seminar, we cover a variety of topics, including:

• State retirement plans
• Social Security
• Heath care
• Financial planning
• Estate planning

WEA-Retired members Karla Kragelund and Sandy Kokko are the seminar presenters along with guest speakers. Some people find it helpful to have an estimate of their benefits from the Department of Retirement Systems. You can get this information from the DRS website. Click on the “Nearing Retirement” icon on the right-hand side of the page, then select “Benefit Estimators.” You will need to create an online account to access your information. Another document some people find useful is an estimate of their Social Security benefits. You can find this by going to the Social Security website. Follow the directions there.

Our upcoming WEA-Retired Pre-Retirement Session will be held at The Bates Center (formerly the CEL), 2901 Falk Rd, Vancouver WA.
