Pre-Retirement Sessions


OCERS Retirement Seminar

In light of recent events, OCERS is now offering online retirement seminars via Zoom for those considering retirement, in lieu of in-person Pre-Retirement Sessions. This 90 minute seminar will focus on your OCERS Retirement benefits like estimating your monthly allowance, payment options, nominating beneficiaries, required documents and much more. We encourage members who may be contemplating retirement to attend a Retirement Seminar. All seminars will be held at 10 a.m. Click here to see upcoming dates and to register for one of the retirement seminars.

After attending the OCERS Seminars:

  • Use the myOCERS portal to get an estimate of your retirement benefit
  • Next, call your OCERS representative to receive one-on-one counseling over the phone and initiate the retirement process.
