School Retirement Planning Seminars Dates Set

If you are nearing retirement age, it makes good sense to start considering your retirement benefit options.

To learn about those options, staff from the Nebraska Public Employees Retirement Systems office will offer seminars throughout the spring.

Educators can choose to attend an in-person seminar at one of nine locations across the state or join a virtual webinar.

The seminars are for school plan members and their spouses, age 50 and over. Each eligible employee is entitled to receive leave with pay to attend up to two retirement planning programs (one per fiscal year).

NPERS officials indicate that according to state law “…leave with pay shall mean a day off paid by the employer and shall not mean vacation, sick, personal or compensatory time.”

School retirement plan members may choose to attend a retirement seminar more than twice, but such leave beyond the second seminar will be at the employee’s expense and at the discretion of the administrator.

The seminars are scheduled at locations across the state. Members must enroll in advance to attend at

If you have questions on seminar scheduling, contact NPERS Education Services department at or call 402-471-9671.
