Retirement Countdown

Retirement Countdown is for educators retiring in 12–18 months. It is assumed that attendees of this seminar have already had a one-on-one counseling session with an STRS Ohio benefits counselor.

Retirement Countdown will provide information to help you complete the online Service Retirement Application, including: plan of payment options, designation of single or multiple beneficiaries and enrollment in the STRS Ohio Health Care Program. We’ll conclude by giving you an overview of what to expect during the retirement process and will address any questions you may submit during the presentation.

All participants receive a retirement booklet that highlights the key steps in the retirement process month-by-month. This program is also offered as a webinar.


This program is offered at locations throughout Ohio and advance registration is required. You may register by:
