Retirement Overview
Foundations for your Future

Updated February 28, 2014

The PSERS Foundations For Your Future Programs are designed to give public school employees an overview of their retirement benefits.  These programs provide all active members with general information about PSERS' benefits and services. Attendance at a Foundations for Your Future Program will help you begin to plan for your retirement early in your career.  Each program lasts approximately 90 minutes. 

Registration not required  
Please note - advance registration is not required to attend any of these programs.  You may attend any program at any location that you wish.  If you are unable to attend you can preview our presentation by clicking here to access the Foundations for Your Future Presentation (PDF).  These sessions are provided solely for the education of members of PSERS.  Financial planners will not be permitted to solicit business at these sessions. 

Cancellations If a meeting is to be held at a school and that specific school has closed or dismissed early because of inclement winter weather, the meeting is cancelled.  If you have any questions regarding a meeting cancellation, you may contact PSERS toll-free at 1-888-773-7748.
