The Road Leading to Retirement:

Things to Prepare for Your Next Big Step

Planning for retirement can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Pension Fund is here to help. Join our Retirement Education Director, Rev. Aaron Smith, on the road to help you prepare for the next phase. In these seminars, Aaron will walk you through a step-by-step process of preparing for and entering into retirement. The topics covered will include things such as applying for Social Security and getting your pension started as well as things to consider when it comes to budgeting and living well in your retirement years. You will learn how to calculate what your pension will be in retirement and how our partners at Your Money Line can offer guidance for this next chapter.

We invite all Pension Fund members between the ages of 58-72, who are thinking of retiring within the next year, to find an event near you. It is free to attend and we welcome spouses too. The seminar lasts roughly 4 hours with free lunch provided. We've been with you through the years to help you save for retirement, let us help as you prepare for your next steps on your road to retirement readiness.

Life events play a role for many in deciding when to retire.
