If you are thinking about retiring, you can learn what to expect by joining us at our next Pension Benefit Information Session and Getting Ready for Retirement workshop held at Fund Headquarters in Manhattan.
Join us at one of our Pension Benefit Information Sessions, where you will learn all about your defined benefit pension and receive an estimate of what your monthly pension will be. Our Pension Fund staff will walk you through the entire application process, from deciding on a retirement date to collecting your first pension check. If you are thinking of retiring soon, we encourage you to come to this session and schedule an appointment with a Pension Counselor. Counselors can also help you navigate additional retirement resources, such as the Social Security Administration and Medicare, and will even help you fill out your pension application to make sure it’s complete and accurate.
If you’re curious about what the transition to retired life will be like, come to one of our Getting Ready for Retirement workshops. Staff members from the Wellness Member Assistance Program will be on hand to answer your questions and provide information and resources to help you prepare for this major life change. Representatives from our Retired Members Division will also be available to offer tips on how to stay active with your 1199SEIU retirees through numerous classes, chapter meetings and other monthly events, such as Seniors Out Speaking. We have retiree chapters in 11 locations throughout New York, 11 locations throughout Florida, one in the Carolinas and one in Puerto Rico.
