If you’re nearing retirement age, we’ve added more information sessions this year to help you prepare. The sessions are designed to help you fully understand your 1199SEIU pension benefit—as well as ready yourself for the transition so you can enjoy a satisfying retirement. Depending on your concerns, there are two different information sessions available to you. In one session, representatives from the Pension Fund will walk you through the application process, explain your pension options and give you the information you need to apply for your pension benefit and plan for your financial future. In the other session, presented by our Wellness and Member Assistance Program, you will learn tips on how to prepare for this major life change. If you are vested in the Health Care Employees Pension Fund and are 62 years of age or older, watch your mail in the coming weeks for a postcard that will list the times and dates of the information sessions. All other members who would like more information, please call (646) 473-8666.
In addition, to assist our younger members, we are planning information sessions especially for you. Look for more information in the next issue of For Your Benefit.
