Kellogg Community College will host three free seminars this month focused on the Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System retirement process.

The seminar series, provided by the Michigan Association of Retired School Personnel, will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 19, 20 and 21, at the Binda Performing Arts Center on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek.

The seminars are open to all local school district employees; RSVPs are required and must be submitted at least one week in advance.

  • Pension 101 on Tuesday, Sept. 19, is targeted to newer school employees with up to five years of service who need to understand their plan, including benefits and defined contribution components, and focus on creating the habits necessary to accumulate a retirement savings plan.
  • Pension 201 on Wednesday, Sept. 20, is targeted to mid-career employees with five to 25 years of service who have not determined when they will retire, but need to stay informed of the details for their plan. The focus will be on the many life changes everyone goes through that can impact their retirement security.
  • Pension 301 on Thursday, Sept. 21, is targeted to employees who are in the last few years of their career. This seminar will cover the details of what lies ahead as a public school retiree, including health care, pension benefits and managing lifetime income.
