Are you on track to retire? Free seminars will help you check

Sessions open for HSTA members within five to 10 years of retirement

HSTA Retirement Specialists offer free seminars to help HSTA members who are within five to 10 years of retirement.

The sessions will address questions like: Which ERS Pension option do I take? How do I maximize my Social Security benefit? Do I have enough put away for retirement? Do I need long-term care insurance?

RSVP for a meal courtesy of the NEA Retirement Program and HSTA. You may bring your spouse or a guest who is also close to retirement. We apologize we are unable to accommodate children. This is a benefit for HSTA members, but no HSTA monies will be used for this event.

Our fall sessions are expected to fill up quickly, so please register soon.
