With member interest high, CAS sponsored another retirement workshops on January 19th via Zoom entitled “Will I be Ready and Able to Retire as Planned?” The workshop focused on Financial Literacy and Retirement Planning. Andrew Buttelman and guest speaker David Daly provided CAS members and others with valuable information about their New York State Teachers Retirement System (NYSTRS) and Employees Retirement System (ERS) pension benefits, long-term financial planning, and Social Security. David Daly is a well-respected expert on the NYS pension system who, for many years, was the spokesperson of the New York Teachers Retirement System and the Coordinator of Pre-Retirement Planning services.
Topics discussed included choosing a retirement option, understanding your in-service death benefit, prior service and out of state service, unused sick days, employer-sponsored non-elective and elective 403(B) plans, understanding all pension tiers, and member benefit calculations.
Please feel free to join us for our next Retirement Planning Workshops on Wednesday, April 19th, and Thursday, April 20th, at the Long Island Marriott Hotel at 5:00 pm.
