Retirement Planning Seminars

Overview

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all seminars will be held solely as webinars until further notice.

Planning for your future is important, but sometimes it’s hard to know where or when to start. We offer webinars to help you plan for retirement during your early, mid, and/or late career. If you want to know more about your ACERA retirement and how it works, attend a webinar.

However, if you are already familiar with the retirement system, and are ready to submit retirement paperwork, visit our Applying to Retire page.
