Ignore vendor email offering to discuss retirement benefits

Caution cone sits on computer keyboard

Recently you may have received an email from an outside vendor stating that as an Olympia School District employee you are eligible to schedule a phone call or teleconference meeting with a representative regarding retirement benefit questions.

This email did not come from the Olympia School District, even though the subject heading on at least one email listed it as “Assistance for Olympia School District Personnel.”

The Olympia School District does not endorse one retirement planner/firm over another. In addition, the district has not, and will not share information with a firm. Your email address is likely listed on our website, and we believe that the firm has searched our website for the purpose of solicitations. The district has not submitted a list of employees and email addresses as part of a public disclosure request. 

Please contact Tonya Palmer, payroll supervisor, if you have questions or additional concerns at help-payroll@osd.wednet.edu.
