Help Your Employees Plan for the Future
Whether at the beginning of a career or nearing the end of it, your employees have important decisions to make that will impact their quality of life in retirement. Good information, as well as the opportunity to ask questions and have them answered by experts, is the key to making those decisions.
DRS Education & Outreach
The DRS Education & Outreach (E&O) team travels across the state to increase awareness of retirement benefits and to promote retirement education for your employees.
The team presents complex retirement information in an easy-to-understand manner, answers questions and helps your employees better understand their retirement benefits and options. As you know, it's never too early or too late to plan for retirement.
We are available to conduct one-on-one appointments scheduled for 15 to 20 minutes. Typical topics discussed include:
- How to use online services (Online Account Access).
- When can I retire?
- Assistance with making changes.
- Plan choice questions.
- How DCP, a supplemental savings plan, can help employees prepare for retirement.
We also attend various events, such as benefit fairs, new employee orientations, staff meetings, conferences, etc., to share information and help make the event a success.
We host retirement seminars around the state. Designed for employees who are within five years of retirement, these seminars cover VEBA, PEBB Health Insurance, retirement system benefits and DCP.
Our team will partner with you to promote retirement planning for your employees.
