The MTRS is happy to announce the return of our personalized counseling sessions in the form of Virtual Retirement Counseling. These sessions are offered via Microsoft Teams to enable much more flexibility than was previously possible with our in-person Group Counseling sessions. These sessions are designed to provide an overview of the current retirement formula and RetirementPlus, as well as general issues concerning the retirement process.

Prior to the session, you will receive a personalized worksheet reflecting your years of creditable service along with instructions on how to join the webinar. We will walk you through the various retirement calculations using the regular retirement formula and RetirementPlus. In addition, after the presentation you will have the opportunity to have a one-on-one meeting with one of our Retirement Analysts to go over specific questions you may have about your personal situation.

As in the past with our Group Counseling sessions, Virtual Retirement Counseling is still run on a first-come, first-served basis and is meant for members aged 55 or older who, have not had a creditable service estimate processed within the last five years, and who are within one to two years of retirement.

If you are interested in attending, please complete our registration application form. Staff will determine your eligibility and reach out to schedule a time for you to attend.

We look forward to serving you!
