Beyond the Classroom

As you get further into your career, chances are you’re starting to think “beyond the classroom” and specifically about your retirement options and how to finance your retirement. During this two-hour workshop for midcareer educators, we provide information about:

  • Your STRS Ohio pension (eligibility requirements, how to calculate and plan of payment options).
  • Reconciling your anticipated retirement expenses and your pension income.
  • Retirement health care considerations.

Attendees will receive a workbook that includes worksheets to assist with determining: estimated expenditures; the value of current savings in retirement; and the amount of savings still needed to reach retirement financial goals.
