Online retirement planning seminar available for PERS and TRS Plan 1 members

As the number of active PERS and TRS Plan 1 members gets smaller, fewer Plan 1 members are attending Department of Retirement (DRS) seminars. This lowered attendance means that DRS will begin reducing the number of seminars in 2014 that feature Plan 1 content for members.

PERS and TRS Plan 1 members will continue to have access to Plan 1 seminar content online. In addition, the PERS and TRS Plan 1 sessions will continue in the following locations in future retirement seminars:

  • King County (Saturdays only)
  • Thurston County (Saturdays only)
  • Tacoma
  • Spokane
  • Wenatchee
Plan 1 retirement seminars still available at your place of employment

For those who are not able to travel to the counties that offer Plan 1 retirement content, or view the webinars online, employers may request a group presentation at your place of work. The DRS Education & Outreach team can help your employer coordinate an onsite visit.
