  • MOSERS (Missouri State Employees' Retirement System)

    MOSERS will offer an additional method for members to receive PreRetirement education via webinar. This session will be similar to group sessions held on campus for members, but will be accessed individually via their own work or home computer.
    After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    Equipment: Members will need only basic equipment to participate (internet access and a computer with speakers). Questions and Answers will be handled via the keyboard during the session. Questions posed later may be directed to a MOSERS benefit counselor through the toll-free phone number, website chat feature, or email.

    Content: The webinar will offer the same content as the on-site session MOSERS offers at many campus locations. The presentation will include a view of the PowerPoint program while hearing a speaker.

    Handouts: If members choose to have printed materials before or after the session, they should print their own benefit estimate from MOSERS website (in the secure login section). For a print copy of the workbook, members should go to then scroll to PreRetirement Planning Workbook at the bottom, click on View Workbook, and follow the instructions.
