SERS/TRS Plans 2 and 3, as well as the Washington State Deferred Compensation Program, will be discussed.

DRS has also scheduled a benefit summit on April 25 and a retirement seminar (pre-retirement) on June 24.

Newly published DRS information about when to retire

When it comes to retirement planning, the DRS said it is often asked by teachers and other school employees in Plans 2 and 3 about the best month to retire. The most common question is whether it is better to retire at the end of June or in September.

For some insight into this question, the DRS has posted a new article on its website.
