Close to retiring? Attend an upcoming PERA workshop

Learn about your retirement benefits and options at a group counseling session, individual conference or a pre-retirement workshop hosted by the Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA). A series of events to help employees understand the retirement benefits through PERA take place through December.

In every option, you’ll have the opportunity to review your benefit options, get answers to your questions, go through the application process and learn about the online tool MY PERA. You are encouraged to bring your spouse or other individual you may name as your survivor.

Register for a session online through MY PERA or by calling 800-652-9026. The events fill up quickly, and you must register at least two weeks in advance. Saturday appointments are available.

If you have questions about how your pension plan works, the public pension plans in Minnesota — PERA, Minnesota State Retirement System and the Teachers Retirement Association – have created a video explaining the value of your pension.
