Road to Retirement sessions scheduled

Road to Retirement sessions will be held Sept. 5 for faculty and staff age 55 and older.

Speakers from PERF, TIAA-CREF, Social Security, and the Purdue University Retirees Association (PURA) will focus on things to consider as retirement approaches, retirement procedures and timing, how benefits work together during retirement, medical insurance in retirement, and what it's like to be retired.

The first session is 8 a.m.-12:15 p.m. and is geared toward employees covered by PERF. The second session at 1-5 p.m. is for people covered by TIAA-CREF. Both sessions will be in Room 214 A-D, Stewart Center.

Space is limited. Registration is available at https://www2.itap.purdue.edu/bs/Training2.0/login_form.cfm by logging in with your Purdue career account and password. Scroll down to Road to Retirement, and select the appropriate session.
