Overview

Retirement Planning Seminars
Now Including Deferred Compensation Experts

Planning for your future is important, but sometimes it’s hard to know where or when to start. We offer seminars 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 seminar. We’re now including guest experts on 457b deferred compensation.

However, if you are already familiar with the retirement system, and are ready to submit retirement paperwork, you should attend a Ready-to-Retire counseling session.
