Published: July 1, 2013

With the CalPERS retirement workshops scheduled for July 17 and July 26 now filled to capacity, a third workshop has been added on Friday, Aug. 16 from 2 to 4:30 p.m., in the Barrett Athletic Center second floor conference room.

All CalPERS members are welcome to attend and the workshop is highly recommended for employees who have at least five years of CalPERS service credit and are age 50-plus.

In addition, there are still limited spots available for the Wednesday, July 17 workshop titled Medicare 101, which will be held from 2 to 3 p.m., also in the second floor conference room of the Barrett Center. Both workshops are geared towards individuals nearing retirement

Presented by a CalPERS retirement specialist, the retirement workshop will cover the retirement process, retirement calculation, service credit, survivor continuance and the application process.

Due to limited seating this workshop is offered to university employees with a minimum of five years of CalPERS service credit.

The Medicare 101 workshop will provide attendees with easy-to-understand information about Medicare and discuss how it works with your CalPERS retiree health plan. If you are considering retirement or are already Medicare eligible you can get the information needed for enrollment.

To attend either event, RSVP by Friday, July 12 by contacting Benefits Services at or 562/985-2381.
