MTRS offers Ready for Retirement programs

The Massachusetts Teachers' Retirement System program Ready for Retirement will be offered at several locations across the Commonwealth in November.

During this nuts-and-bolts seminar, participants will learn exactly what to do—and expect—as they go through the retirement process, according to the MTRS. 

Topics include: 

  • The retirement application process and the benefit calculation formula
  • Timelines and service expectations
  • First payment information
  • Health insurance, tax and working after retirement issues, and
  • Cost-of-living adjustments after you retire

The MTRS requests that participants REGISTER ONLINE at least 7 days before the program they wish to attend.

All programs meet 4-6 p.m.
