Preretirement Education Counselors
Who and What is Preretirement Education?
Members of ATRS are served by preretirement counselors who travel the state covering designated territorial areas. Counselors provide one-on-one benefits counseling and conduct retirement workshops. Counselors are available to assist you with questions such as explanation of laws, eligibility, options, preretirement steps, and purchase service eligibility. If you are eligible for retirement or the T-Drop program, we urge you to attend a retirement workshop. Please be advised Benefit Estimates may change due to law and rule changes and we suggest you request a current estimate prior to retirement. Although we strive to educate our members with specific answers to their individual needs while they are attempting to make a sound decision concerning retirement, it is the responsibility of members to make certain the retirement chosen is best for them. The preretirement counselors work diligently with employers to accommodate scheduled visits to service members of ATRS. The names and link to the preretirement counselors are listed below.
* We strongly believe by attending a preretirement counseling session or workshop, it may help avoid any last minute ROADBLOCKS when you are ready to retire.
