Announcement Message

The 2015 Retirement Planning Seminar Schedule is now available from the Department of Retirement Systems. If you are a member of the Washington State Retirement Systems (LEOFF, PERS, PSERS, SERS, TRS, WSPRS) and within five years of retirement, we encourage you to review the seminar information overview, and register online at your convenience. Other options for registering are:

  • E-mail DRS at Register@drs.wa.gov or
  • Call (360) 664-7300 or 1-888-711-6676

If you do not find a seminar near your location or on a date that is convenient for you, you may be interested in viewing our recorded seminar on-line.  This seminar was recorded in Wenatchee on August 9, 2014 and is available for viewing at any time.

The Retirement Planning page provides useful information to help you with your retirement planning regardless of how close or far away it is. You can also sign up for online account access. This access will allow you to review your service credit, contributions, beneficiary information, and much more. You can also create a benefit estimate that is based on the data in your account, and when you’re ready, retire online.

Please note:  Due to space limitations, registration for DRS seminars is limited to members of the Washington State Retirement Systems. We are not able to accommodate reservation requests for members of other retirement systems.
