7 ... 9 p.m. Thinking About Retiring seminar provides great information for members nearing retirement, reviewing members options and information about how to successfully transition into retired life.

All plan members are welcome to attend, including those receiving long-term disability (LTD) benefits.  Members attending the seminars are invited to a buffet dinner from 6:00 ... 7:00 pm on the day of the seminar.  No wage replacement or expense reimbursement is available for attending these seminars.

MPP recommends that you bring your most recent Members' Benefit Statement to the seminars and there will be a sample statement in the handout material as well.  The instructor will go over the statement during the presentations but it is helpful to have your own information available.  Once you have registered for the pension seminar, you will receive a confirmation email from HSA.  This email will include contact information from MPP to obtain your pension statement.
